Survey of Information Literacy Instructional Practices in Community College Libraries in Florida and New York

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Academic librarians at community colleges in Florida and New York were surveyed to determine current instructional practices, transition to the new ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education, and perceptions of student information literacy needs related to these learners' educational, occupational, and personal contexts. Survey findings also provide a snapshot of the challenges community college librarians face in serving their academic communities. While the literature on information literacy (IL) instruction in academic libraries is quite expansive, less is known about IL instruction specifically in community college libraries and how the diversity of student needs is being addressed. Survey findings help to fill this gap

Participants will:
  • Be able to describe the instructional practices of community college librarians in Florida and New York.
  • Understand the perceptions community college librarians have of the instructional needs of their students in Florida and New York.
  • Be able to discuss the extent to which the new ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education is being implemented in community colleges in Florida and New York.
