3. Including Information Literacy Curriculum in Your Courses
As you prepare your classes, you may want to include information literacy skill building into your curriculum, as appropriate for your discipline. Fogler Reference Librarians are able to assist with identifying concepts and designing assignments, as well as provide instruction in this area. Contact your subject librarian if you would like to discuss this.
