The Association of Colleges and Research Libraries (ACRL) has added LMU to its Exemplary Programs page. These programs are recognized as embodying the best practices in the document “Characteristics of Programs of Information Literacy that Illustrate Best Practices: A Guideline” and grading rubric. The LMU Information Literacy Program has been recognized in two categories: Goals and Objectives, and Articulation within the Curriculum.
Category 2: Goals and Objectives
“This program exemplifies articulation of learning outcomes in a scaffolded approach at the course and program level.”
Category 5: Articulation within the Curriculum
“The combination of University-level adoption of information literacy into the core curriculum and the librarian-created scaffolded approach of introducing, reinforcing, and enhancing information literacy outcomes makes this a model program.”
