Why Should You Include Information Literacy in Your Course?

• “Information literacy is conceivably the foundation for learning in our contemporary environment of continuous technological change.” UNESCO White Paper

• Read "It’s the Information Age, So Where’s the Information?—an article by a professor analyzing students’ lack of understanding of research. (If you’re off campus, you’ll have to use your ACCeID and password to access this.)

• It’s part of college accreditation [SACS, Principles of Accreditation, Comprehensive Standards, Section 3.82].
