Information Literacy Resources

Introduction to Information Literacy Resources

Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) framework and definition of Information Literacy:
"Information literacy is the set of integrated abilities encompassing the reflective discovery of information, the understanding of how information is produced and valued, and the use of information in creating new knowledge and participating ethically in communities of learning."

This guide links to numerous resources to promote information literacy at Defiance College. 

  1. Library Instruction - our librarian and library staff are prepared to provide face-to-face instruction on using library resources and basic research skills as well as understanding, evaluating, and presenting information. 
  2. Library Tutorials - these are a series of self-serve video tutorials that were created specifically for finding and using Defiance College's resources for research. 
  3. Information Literacy Module - this is a series of six online modules from Credo. Some modules include quizzes that you can use to test students knowledge. These modules cover the basics in getting started in your research; finding, evaluating, and using sources; and citations and the importance of academic integrity.
