LMU Librarians Publish Article on Embedding Information Literacy across the Curriculum

learning outcomes diagram for information literacy at lmuLibrarians Glenn Johnson-Grau, Susan Gardner Archambault, Elisa Slater Acosta, and Lindsey McLean recently published an article in The Journal of Academic Librarianship entitled “Patience, persistence, and process: Embedding a campus-wide information literacy program across the curriculum.”

The article, published as a guest editorial online in October 2016, “discusses strategies for academic libraries to collaborate with faculty to institutionalize important information literacy training. The discussion is framed around a case study of a medium-sized academic institution in the United States that successfully embedded information literacy concepts into course-level learning outcomes for three required courses in a new core curriculum.” [abstract]

LMU’s information literacy program has received national attention and accolades, including being recognized as an “Exemplary Program” by the Association for College & Research Libraries (ACRL) in the categories of Goals and Objectives and Articulation within the Curriculum. Our Lion’s Guide to Research and the Library online tutorial was recognized by the ACRL Peer-Reviewed Instructional Materials Online (PRIMO) Committee for excellence in online information literacy instruction. The library’s Information Literacy Workshop LibGuide is also a featured site on Project Information Literacy’s “Practical PIL” page.
