Presentation Description

What is information literacy? Academic librarians have defined the concept through the criteria set forth in the Association of College and Research Libraries’ Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education (2000). But what do college students think, and why should it matter to instructional/user services librarians? This presentation will describe the results of a study in which in-depth, semi-structured interviews were conducted with college freshmen who were then given a standardized information literacy test.
