“Information Literacy is defined as the ability to know when there is a need for information, to be able to identify, locate, evaluate, and effectively use that information for the issue or problem at hand” (National Forum on Information Literacy, 2013).

As experts in information literacy, the Baker University librarians are happy to work with you to incorporate information literacy into your courses and programs (contact information is on the right side of this page). 

We have provided a series of resources in the left menu to aid in your course and program planning, including: guidelines for higher education, specific disciplines, and Baker's Quest Program; collaboration ideas; and a series of research tutorials.
