abstract
"This 115-page study presents data from 60 North American colleges and universities about their academic library and institutional information literacy efforts. The study helps librarians and others to answer questions such as: What are staffing and staff time use trends in information literacy? How many more or fewer students will take information literacy oriented classes and sessions this year as compared to last year? What software packages are favored for producing info literacy tutorials? How do instructors rate the information literacy skills of their students, before and after training? What is the role of information literacy testing? What about trends in information literacy assistance to faculty? What is the role of information literacy presentations at student orientations? What is the relationship like between library information literacy faculty and key academic departments? What percentage of colleges have formal information literacy requirements and what are these requirements? This is just a small sample of topic coverage"--Publisherʹs website.
