This workshop will focus on the increasingly critical skills of
information literacy, described by some as a “new liberal art.” It
requires a comprehensive set of abilities to identify infor-mation
need, locate and evaluate information, understand how it is
socially and culturally situated, and then use it effectively.
Cooper and Turner will discuss their own experiences working
collaboratively as well as independently on projects requiring
students to embrace information literacy not only for specific
projects, but as a key part of their life-long learn-ing
