Information Literacy at Sierra Nevada College
Information is more widely available, and is being produced more rapidly, than at any other time in history. While students and researchers have access to more and more information, it has become more and more challenging to do accurate research and to find appropriate information effectvely and efficiently.
The Association of College and Research Libraries calls information "the basis for lifelong learning. It is common to all disciplines, to all learning environments, and to all levels of educaiton. It enables learners to master content and extend their investigations, become more self-directed, and assume greater control over their own learning." (From ACRL)
