Mission

The mission of the Will W. Alexander Library’s Information Literacy Instruction Program is to teach members of the Dillard University community to find, evaluate, and use information effectively.

 

 

Goals

The Will W. Alexander Library’s Information Literacy Instruction Program accepts the definition of information literacy as described by the American College and Research Libraries (ACRL) of the American Library Association.

 

The Information Literacy Instruction Program will offer classes that will support teaching and learning at Dillard University.

 

Information literacy skills will help students be successful, not only in their classes and majors at DU, but as life-long learners.

 

Librarians will work with faculty to identify information literacy goals in their programs and majors and identify the best ways to meet those goals.

 

Information literacy instruction will adapt to varying learning styles and changing technology.

 

 

Policy and Procedures

Instruction provided by librarians includes:

 

Librarians provide instruction to a variety of users including distance learners, nontraditional students, undergraduate students, faculty, staff, and special community groups.  Priority is given to students, faculty, and staff of Dillard University.

 

 

Off-Campus Instruction

DU students, staff and faculty have direct access to the library staff through Reference Chat, email, the library’s website, social media and via phone during scheduled Library hours. Librarians conduct most library sessions in the Information Literacy Classroom on the 1st floor of the Library, where each student has access to a computer or use their own mobile device. This creates an environment for 21st century active teaching and learning.

 

 

Scheduling a Session

To schedule a session, a professor or individual may contact the Coordinator of Information Literacy or the Library Liaison for a specific department. Library sessions work best when they are designed to support a specific project or assignment(s).  Instructional Faculty are encouraged to share information about the assignment and the course with the librarians before the session. Scheduling of sessions is dependent on the availability of librarians and the classroom. Active participation by the course instructor is important. It helps students understand the connection between information literacy skills and their course content.  Faculty should accompany their class to the Library session.

 

 

Public School Visits

The Library will provide information literacy instruction to K-12 schools and to Dillard University community groups if time, scheduling and staff allow.

At institutions of higher education across the U.S., information literacy (IL) is being integrated into general education curricula as a specific learning objective. The Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) (1) defines information literate students as those who “recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information.” As the world moves toward a knowledge-based economy, information literacy becomes a crucial component of preparing students for the lifelong learning that current and future job markets demand.
