- Information literacy and the University mission
- The goal of information literacy is reflected in the mission of our university. Information literacy is an essential skill to empower students to be become independent life-long learners. To reach both career and personal success in a world where information sources are constantly growing and evolving, students need to be able to determine how information is organized and accessed, to evaluate its quality, and to judge how it can best be used.
In support of the university's mission of promoting critical thinking, lifelong learning, and the capacity for sound judgment, McKillop Library advocates for the importance of teaching information literacy and research skills throughout the curriculum.
