What is information literacy?
"Information literacy is a set of abilities requiring individuals to "recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information." Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education. American Library Association . 2006."

Information Literacy and COM Library
One of the missions of COM Library is to help our students become information literate. We do this through our LibGuides, library instruction classes and helping students one on one with their research. In addition, the Research Tutorial is required in English 1301 as well as a class visit to the library where students receive librarian instruction. Most of our LibGuides have information literacy built in, but there are several that go into more depth, most notably the Research Tutorial. You can access these in depth LibGuides from the Information Literacy LibGuides box, on the left side of this page. Faculty can check out the Library Instruction page to see what kinds of library instruction we offer and schedule for their classes.
