Programs, Skills, Impact: Assessing Information Literacy

To support information literacy (IL) advocacy activities among K-20 librarians, the Information Literacy Advisory Group of Oregon (ILAGO) has compiled an annotated bibliography of resources from library professional literature demonstrating the “impact and importance of information literacy in student success.” Nearly half of the resources are freely available online. The list will continue to grow as new IL assessment studies appear.

To view the list, visit http://ilago.wordpress.com/resources/il-evidence/. Note the comments box at the bottom of the page, where ILAGO invites visitors to submit resource suggestions and leave comments.

LART sends a round of applause to Tina Hovekamp, Tina Weyland, and Kirsten Hostetler, who assembled the list; and to Candice Watkins, Lisa Tegethoff, and Tracy Scharn who set up the project page on the ILAGO site. Thanks very much for your efforts.
