A guide for ways to enhance your courses with the help of UMA Libraries.

Information Literacy Needs

Why is it important to incorporate information literacy into your courses and assignments?

  • Students acquire information in a variety of information formats today (TV, internet, social media, etc.)
  • Students don’t necessarily understand how to use libraries
  • Students often don’t understand:
    • citation style formats
    • difference between magazine and journal articles
    • what a database is
    • difference between web and deep web
    • what is disinformation?

UMA Librarians Donna Maher and Cynthia Young are happy to offer information literacy sessions on a variety of topics!
