The Foundations of Musselman Library’s Information Literacy Program
- Student learning goals for information literacy are interconnected with the College's curricular goals.
- Information literacy is an integral part of academic and everyday life research.
- Information literacy instruction and any subsequent activity must help to realize faculty learning goals at the course and department levels.
- Students should be given sequential opportunities to learn new information literacy habits, to practice them, to reinforce them, and ultimately to master them.
- Above all, we emphasize the teaching of concepts over skills as a means to achieve our mission of educating information literate lifelong learners.
Thanks to Wartburg College for permitting us to use and modify their mission statement.
