As put forth by the Libraries’ Strategic Plan, UI Librarians are invested in high-impact practices that promote critical thinking, problem solving, discipline-based knowledge, analysis, creativity, synthesis, and perspective taking. 

At UI Libraries, we are inspired by the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher EducationDepending on the goals and content of your course, UI Librarians will embed concepts from the ACRL Framework into the instruction sessionUI Librarians are also attuned to the most recent research surrounding information literacy. This includes reports from Project Information Literacycritical information literacy, lateral reading, media literacy, and evidence-based practices 

For more information on our guiding philosophies on information literacy, please reach out to a liaison librarian, the Head of Undergraduate Engagement, or the Head of Humanities and Social Sciences.
