Information Literacy Support for the First Year Experience

This guide contains materials supporting the information literacy component of the FYE. It is intended for the use of the instructional teams, not for the direct use of FYE students.

What's here

Within this page are sub-tabs for each of the 8 learning outcomes.  For each outcome there are lists of potential discussion topics and exercises.

Are these in order?

Not necessarily in chronological order of presentation!

The latter outcomes, which focus on the research process itself, are somewhat more concrete.  You may find it easier to start with some of those skills and then work into the more absract concepts like the "information lifecycle!"   Each section of the course will probably address IL a little differently.
