Student Engagement and Information Literacy addresses information literacy in a framework inspired by higher education scholarship and dialogue as it relates to student engagement. Articles are based on what librarians and faculty know about how students learn, how different learning environments affect engagement, and how different groups on campuses can collaborate on student engagement and learning. Contributors range from administrators, faculty members, and librarians, to professional association vice-presidents.
