Information Literacy and Instruction
Information Literacy Program
Welcome! The Information Literacy Program at Steely Library seeks to develop and advance effective research behaviors across the curriculum at NKU. This includes finding, accessing, evaluating, and synthesizing a wide range of sources in multiple formats. Print or electronic, information seeking has never been easier AND more difficult for our students.
In the next few years, librarians will be partnering with individual departments to identify how information literacy plays a role in our students' academic success and in their future careers. The goal of the program is to identify a specific course (or courses) in each department where information literacy is purposefully integrated. In addition, librarians are working with general education faculty to ensure students are gaining introductory research experience prior to introducing more advanced concepts in their majors.
