Defining Information Literacy

In 2016-17, the Information Literacy FLC administered a survey to campus requesting feedback on the following ACRL definition as well as posing questions regarding the markers of an information literate person. 

Information literacy: 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.


The OLFLC has developed a draft rubric that they will continue to refine over the 2018-19 academic year.

Progress Report

In September 2018, the IL-FLC submitted a progress report and recommendations to the Academic Senate, UEPC and the AVP for Academic Affairs. This report includes the summary results and analysis of a February 2017 survey of Stanislaus students, faculty, administration, and staff asking them to describe the markers of information literate people.
