What is a LibGuide?: Information Literacy
How University Libraries LibGuides can be used in your classroom.
The Association of College & Research Libraries has developed national IL standards for higher education. These standards have been accepted by the American Association of Colleges & Universities. The South Dakota Board of Regents has approved the use of the five ACRL IL Standards as learning outcomes for its Goal 7 General Education Requirement: Information Literacy.
Information seeking skills are best learned when embedded within assignments and disciplinary coursework. USD librarians are available to help instructors design assignments and activites that blend information literacy within the learning outcomes intended for your students.
Subject specific LibGuides like this ENGL 283: Creative Writing guide can help instructors guide students to important resources, and help student compare and select the best information sources for their work.
