About Information Literacy Instruction Services

Reflecting the mission of St. John's University, the University Libraries information literacy and instruction program is committed to supporting excellent teaching, innovative research, and the personal and intellectual growth of our students. In an era of rapidly changing information technologies and learning environments, proficiencies in information literacy and research skills enable students to create informed, critical analysis of the information ecosystem. The Libraries' information literacy and instruction program aims to promote the skills that students require to effectively access information; to evaluate information sources critically; to create original scholarship; to adapt to ever-evolving information systems; and to understand the laws and ethics surrounding the use and creation of information.

The University Libraries’ Information Literacy and Instruction Program outlines six information literacy concepts, each with student learning objectives.
