Abstract

Information overload is native to many graduate students. With numerous databases and resources available, graduate students often lack a blueprint to identify, seek, and find pertinent materials for research. This session hopes to take Information Literacy from a generic skill to academic proficiency, pertinent across all disciplines. This session should aid faculty and staff in developing techniques to help make students lifelong learners, and critical thinkers.

This session will explore targeted and strategic information literacy instruction models for graduate students to include individual and customized sessions that direct, motivate, and enhance the searching skills of graduate students. This presentation will also explore various information literacy models as it relates to classroom presentations, one-on-one sessions and online tutorials with library staff.
