Contextualizing Information Literacy: Why “Why” Makes All The Difference, Wendy Doucette Sep 2016

Contextualizing Information Literacy: Why “Why” Makes All The Difference, Wendy Doucette

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

Graduate students require the same base knowledge of information literacy as undergraduates, but are less likely to receive in-class instruction. Rather than considering them as external, theoretical signposts or goals, this presentation will discuss the value of situating the ACRL Information Literacy Standards and Framework into the real-life graduate student experience. Explaining what it means to have membership in the academic community leads directly to a deeper understanding of scholarly dialogue, authority and peer review. This grounding leads to an understanding of ownership, copyright, and plagiarism. This high-level overview of the scholarly research process allows students to comprehend their own ...

Copyright, Fair Use, And Social Media Instruction For Undergraduates, Elizabeth Kelly

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

Undergraduate students are increasingly expected to navigate the world of posting both original and reused content to social media. But how do students know what they should and shouldn’t share on social media? And how does this change depending on whether the student is using a personal account versus one made for school or for a job? An understanding of the ethics and legality of sharing copyrighted content is essential to the third frame, “Information Has Value,” of the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education. Much of student use of copyrighted materials for coursework is covered by ...

Libraries often face challenges when launching new services and integrating new applications with existing systems. Universal problems in the library world include not only technical issues but also the need for cooperation and working relationships both within the library and outside of the library. Last August XXX University Libraries completed our initial roll out of SIPX, a new electronic reserves system which is a cloud based product created by Stanford University. Our implementation of SIPX is a case study in best practices for dealing with all of the logistics that are outside of the actual technological issues. The project is ...
