  • Description

In college and university libraries across the nation, information literacy has become more than just an area of instruction--it has become part of the core mission of the organization. This step-by-step guide is designed to show academic library managers, instructors, and staff how to create a synthesized information literacy plan. The authors offer guidance about how to decide what to teach, when and how to deliver instruction, how to assess outcomes, and revise based on assessment results.

The preliminary steps--team building; needs assessment; environmental scans; timelines; and goal setting are outlined. Then key sections provide methods for writing, maintaining, assessing, and promoting the finalized plan. The writing process--establishing a structure, setting priorities, addressing audiences, finalizing and approving the document, and more--is simplified and explained. Special sections include lists of information literacy support associations, definitions, best practices, and Web sites. The CD-ROM enables users to adapt and print their own planning workbook, checklists, and supporting documents to use individually or with larger groups and committees.
