Abstract:

From high schools and colleges to technical and graduate schools, research involves making sense of information: learning the basics of planning, winnowing, and evaluating the quality of sources. As information proliferates, it's tempting to use the handiest tool rather than working to identify the best one. But there's a better way! Updated for today's ever-expanding world of electronic information, Teaching Information Literacy: 50 Standards-Based Exercises for College Students, Second Edition is the best single resource for fundamental information literacy instruction. Covering the basics of planning, collecting, and evaluating, the exercises in this book: address one or more of the ACRL Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education; promote conceptual and applied skills via active learning, problem-based learning, and resource-based learning; and are ready for use by reference and instruction librarians at colleges and community colleges, as well as others responsible for teaching students how to conduct research. These 50 lessons can be used as a full semester course or as a single focused seminar or workshop, and show how to engage with electronic and print information resources alike.
