About this guide

Welcome to the Leeward Community College Information Literacy Program!

The Leeward Community College Library and the Language Arts Division have collaborated on a program to teach information literacy skills to students enrolled in the ESL 22, ENG 24, ENG 98B, and ENG 100 courses. Students in these courses are required to study an online tutorial and then take an exam to assess their knowledge and skills. To proceed please select one of the tabs above.

What is Information Literacy?

One of the Leeward Community College Library core missions is to teach you how to find, evaluate, and use information - not just so you can complete your class assignments, but also to help you make informed decisions throughout your career and life. This is information literacy. Our ultimate goal is to help you acquire the skills you need to compete in a global information society that is rapidly changing. Information seeking skills are part of the critical thinking skills that will help you meet changes and challenges in your personal life and workplace with confidence.
