Presentation Description

Librarians, charged with responsibility for ensuring that students are information literate, play a vital role in the instruction of written communication and information literacy assessment. This presentation examines information literacy assessments developed and used by librarians in terms of their exclusion of the necessary written skills that are part of the information literacy skills set as described by the Associations of College and Research Libraries, and suggests ways in which we can better assess these skills as a set, addressing the needs of our students more accurately and successfully.
