Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"The contributors to this book got it exactly right: it takes a whole campus to produce an information-literate graduate."

–George D. Kuh, chancellor’s professor, and director, Center for Postsecondary Research, Indiana University

The American Library Association’s Presidential Committee defines information literacy as "the ability to know when information is needed and to be able to know, locate, and effectively use that information for lifelong learning and problem solving." Increasingly, educators are expressing concern that students are not developing the ability to critically analyze the messages they receive from television, the Internet, and other media sources. Students also lack the abilities needed to effectively utilize the myriad information sources available to them.

Research has shown that in order to develop information literacy skills, students must be given repeated opportunities throughout their college years to acquire and exercise these skills in their daily lives. Integrating Information Literacy into the Higher Education Curriculum is filled with information and practical examples from a wide variety of institutions that show how information literacy programs and partnerships can transform the higher education teaching and learning environments. The contributors to this important resource are experts in the field and include such leaders as Pam Baker, Amelie Brown, Lynn Cameron, Renée R. Curry, Susan Carol Curzon, Trudi E. Jacobson, Bonnie Gratch Lindauer, Ilene F. Rockman, and Patrick Sullivan. The Foreword is by Patricia Senn Breivik.

The contributors address various practices of information literacy that have proven successful at two- and four-year institutions and cover topics such as

  • Developing faculty-librarian partnerships
  • Integrating information literacy into the curriculum
  • Designing freshman-level tutorials to promote information literacy
  • Meeting information literacy needs in a research setting
  • Infusing information literacy into an interdisciplinary major
  • Creating an assessment instrument for measuring information literacy
  • Assessing information literacy

Educators and administrators will find Integrating Information Literacy into the Higher Education Curriculum to be a valuable resource for integrating information competence strategies into the academic structure and helping all their students to become skilled at finding, evaluating, analyzing, integrating, managing, and conveying information effectively.

Book News Annotation:

Rockman (manager, Information Competence Initiative for the Office of the Chancellor, California State University System) showcases practical examples of how information literacy programs and partnerships can transform teaching and learning environments at two- and four-year institutions. An introduction explains the differences between information and computer literacy and suggests components for an information literacy curriculum. Contributors working in academic libraries describe experiences in designing tutorials for information literacy, meeting information literacy needs in a research setting, and assessing information literacy.
