What is Information Literacy?
Information literacy is "the ability to know when there is a need for information, to be able to identify, locate, evaluate, and effectively use that information for the issue or problem at hand." (National Forum on Information Literacy)
Richland College recognizes information literacy as an essential outcome of general education. All Richland Institutional/General Eduation Student Learning Outcomes, including "Evaluate information effectively" are accessed using the General Education Student Learning Outcomes Rubrics.
In order to complete any of the Information Literacy badges, you must enroll in the Information Literacy eCampus Organization.
Summer II registration will be open July 9 - August 7, 2014.
