College of San Mateo Librarians can provide information literacy instruction for face-to-face, online, or hybrid classes in either synchronous or asynchronous modalities. Instruction can range from a general introduction to the Library and its services to an instruction session customized to meet a specific assignment, learning outcome, or need.
CSM Library faculty use the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education to inform the design and teaching of instruction sessions. We encourage all faculty to learn a bit more about this framework.
This summarizes the document, ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education. Summary below by Sherri Saines.
Scholarship is a Conversation
In both actions and attitudes, and for each of these ideas separately, a researcher moves along a continuum from novice to expert. Their path to Expert Information User is just as convoluted and recursive as the research they are doing. For example, one aspect of Information Has Value might be stated this way: Novice information users underestimate the time and skill that goes into creating a product; they see themselves as consumers. Experts see themselves as producers, and value the work & time it takes.
