Concise Guide to Information Literacy - Scott Lanning
ISBN: 1598849492
Publication Date: 2012-03-01
The American Library Association defines "information literacy" as "a set of abilities requiring individuals to recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information." "The Concise Guide to Information Literacy" gives students the tools they need to develop those abilities, including the search techniques and evaluation methods that will help them pinpoint what actually "is" academically sound information. Using the Association of College and Research Libraries' Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education as a framework, it covers all the major facets of the information literacy process. For students, it is a ready-to-use guide that explains what information literacy is, why it is so important, and how to put it to use in both print and online research.
