What is Information Literacy?

"Information literacy is the set of integrated abilities encompassing the reflective discovery of information, the understanding of how information is produced and valued, and the use of information in creating new knowledge and participating ethically in communities of learning."

  • Use the library databases to find peer reviewed materials.
  • Evaluate sources for quality, validity, and bias.
  • Create advanced database and internet searching strategies.
  • Identify elements of APA citations.
  • Cite sources responsibly.

You will also create your own BoardVitals login and learn how to use the board prep database.
