Let’s talk about information literacy for a moment. What do I mean when I say that? I mean that in order to be great researchers, great information consumers, and let’s face it, to be able to navigate through life in general–you need to develop a set of skills that helps you identify your information needs, figure out how to get that info, and decipher the good stuff from the bad!
I had the great opportunity to work with four other amazing librarians from art and design colleges from around the country to develop the curriculum for an online course that was produced by and is hosted by Lynda.com! Go check out the preview at: http://www.lynda.com/Education-Elearning-Higher-Education-tutorials/Information-Literacy/368046-2.html, and if you are interested in viewing the course, contact the library to set up access to Lynda.com–we subscribe to that database here at OCAC, and I’m happy to get you connected.
