Information Literacy Program

The Library has an information literacy skills program based on web-based tutorials and online testing.  The version designed for English 24-level classes, introduces students to the various types of information sources (books, periodical, electronic), and gives basic information about how to find information from these sources.  The version designed for English 100-level classes covers these topics in greater depth, and also teaches students how to use specific research tools, and addresses the evaluation of found information for accuracy, bias, and reliability.  Mastery of the material is assessed through an online quiz, taken through the Laulima learning management system.

For more information about the Information Literacy Program, email lccinflt@hawaii.edu.
