Information Literacy

On Friday, April 25th, 2014, I led a workshop at the Library Information Literacy Advisory Council (LILAC) Spring Workshop, From Stale to Stellar: Practical Innovations for Teaching Information Literacy. The session was titled, “Teaching & Assessing Information Literacy for Graduate Students”. Learn more about the session below.


An overview of information literacy at the Graduate Center as a primarily one-on-one instruction-based process. In this session, participants were led through a Prezi presentation staged as a social network which outlined the collaborative and individualized practices of graduate student instruction.

Notable points of conversation included:

  • Characteristics of Graduate Students as a scholarly community
  • Digital Instruction and implications for librarians
  • Liaison roles and inter-departmental collaborative instruction
  • Resource sharing as a primary function of graduate student research thereby, supplying instruction on information in a larger context
  • Archival Instruction and use of digital tools for students as content creators
  • Scholarly Communication its implications for students who are publishing, presenting papers, considering issues of copyright, and how the library participates in these functions, ie. The Dissertation, or The Institutional Repository

  1. I’m glad you found it interesting! There are many resources. If you are local to NYC, there are conversations happening with ACRL-NY librarians as well as the METRO meet-ups.

    I am interested in further exploration of grad students and info lit. This alone was quite enlightening!
