Information Literacy at Augustana: A Programmatic Approach

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • Information literacy programs and the factors that influence their development and structure can vary significantly from institution to institution. Credit-bearing discipline-specific information literacy courses are a rare and valuable component of an undergraduate educational experience and form the basis of Augustana’s information literacy program. This article provides an overview of the development, implementation, successes, and drawbacks of the credit-bearing discipline-specific information literacy courses at the Augustana Campus of the University of Alberta (Camrose, Alberta, Canada). Additional program components, including Augustana’s annual information literacy workshop, information literacy awards, information literacy DVD, and marketing/branding are discussed.
