Information Literacy Overview

Academic libraries add value to the teaching and learning missions of their universities through information literacy instruction. The WVU Libraries already offer expert research instruction across many disciplines in order to provide students and others with the skills and knowledge to identify, find, and evaluate information. Parts of an overall program for information literacy are significantly developed at WVU Libraries. These include ULIB 101: Introduction to Library Research, a one credit course which reaches over 800 hundred first year through senior students each year, the Information Literacy Course Enhancement Program (ILCEP), which has reached 1100+ students since 2010, and the many efforts of instructional librarians on all three campuses and at the satellite campuses of WVU.
