Build on an Existing Assignment

Select this option if you want to build information literacy into an existing lesson or assignment but aren't sure which kit to choose.

I am integrating information literacy into an existing assignment.

Information literacy is best when it is part of the scaffolding of your course. Because of this, we recommend that any activity you choose is linked to a scored/ weighted assignment. Look at the examples below to help determine which information literacy integration is right for your first-year seminar.

I have a research assignment that…

  • Encourages the use of freely available websites (sources found through Google or other search engines.) 
  • Requires use of library material.
  • Encourages the use of many and varied resources.
  • Requires the use of scholarly sources (journal articles or scholarly books.)
  • Asks students to work with an unfamiliar topic or one they may have trouble easily defining.
  • Requires the use paraphrasing or direct quotations.

Contact your liaison librarian for help with building information literacy elements into your existing or new assignments. Fill out the information literacy session request form to have a librarian visit your class (in-person or online synchronous/ asynchronous.)
