abstract
"The [194]-page exhaustive study presents data from 53 North American colleges and universities about their information literacy efforts. The study helps its readers to answer questions such as: which academic departments are most supportive of information literacy efforts? How much support is college administration giving to information literacy efforts? What new technologies are being used in information literacy and with what impact? How do information literacy instructors evaluate the skill level of their students in various information literacy areas? How confident are they in their knowledge of plagiarism, their use of Boolean search terms, their use of eBook collections or their mastery of citation software? What kind of information literacy tests are being given to college freshmen and in what areas? What new and emerging library technologies are being included in information literacy training? And much more. This edition especially focuses on the issue of evaluation of students and evaluation of information literacy efforts"--Publisher's website.
