“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.” (Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education, Association of College & Research Libraries, 2015)
Information literacy skills are essential for success in our academic, personal, and future professional lives. Development of information literacy and technological competency across disciplines is one of the goals of a Bucknell education.
In collaboration with faculty, librarians are active partners in the development of these vital skills through one-on-one interactions with students at the Research Help desk, through research consultations, and through course-related information literacy instruction.
