Information Literacy at Guttman: A Faculty Toolkit

Use this guide to locate information literacy lessons you can adapt for your courses.

Guttman IL Instruction Services

The Information Literacy program is designed and supported by the information literacy librarians, but information literacy instruction is actually led and taught by Guttman’s faculty and instructors. This approach is founded on the belief that students understand information literacy best in the context of the discipline they are studying and/or in their coursework—not through an occasional, one-off visit from the librarian. Thus, the Information Literacy Librarians are available to consult and assist faculty as they embed information literacy into their course planning. 

More specifically, the Information Literacy librarians support faculty by: 

  • Offering one-on-one, in-person consultation to design effective classroom assignments, active learning exercises, and assessments to better incorporate information literacy into student learning, 

  • Identifying and developing educational resources—online tutorials, readings, assignments, active learning exercises—that faculty can use and adapt for their own classroom instruction, 

  • Providing professional development opportunities focused on defining, teaching, and assessing information literacy in the classroom, and 

  • Co-teaching and embedding information literacy instruction into their courses—either virtually through e-portfolio, in-person, or both.
