Information literacy is a set of abilities requiring individuals to recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information. With the increasing prevalence of online information, students demonstrate difficulty in ferreting out materials suitable for their course assignments and research papers. The small grants are intended to assist faculty in updating their courses and assignments to reflect current changes in information retrieval and use, with the goal of strengthening students' ability to locate, evaluate, understand, and effectively use information resources.
Grant application information is available at
An Informational Literacy Review Panel, composed of faculty and Library administrators, will review the proposals. The grants will be awarded by May 1, 2007.
