Information Literacy is defined by the Association of College and Research Libraries as "the reflective discovery of information, the understanding of how information is produced and valued, and the use of information in creating new knowledge and participating ethically in communities of learning."
Library instruction sessions cover academic research, the scholarly communication practices of the academic community, and how to effectively use research tools and sources. Sessions encourage students to actively engage with the larger issues surrounding the evaluation and use of information.
