RE-Lifelong Learning - Project

This project will bring together academic library professionals at the University of Arizona, University of Nebraska, Lincoln, and Purdue University with classroom instructors to develop disciplinary-based, information literacy curricula. The project will apply a learning design model that underscores the role information plays in the learning process. Preparing graduates to use digital information in their future work and lives requires teaching students to use information in disciplinary and professional learning contexts. This project will help academic library professionals collaborate with disciplinary instructors in order to integrate information literacy into courses and assess the outcomes of the resulting coursework. The results will be shared with academic library professionals, administrators, and information literacy thought leaders across the nation.
