Information Literacy Assistance

Information literacy at Ursinus College is based on our belief that to remain viable in the modern world, the traditional notion of a liberally educated person must be linked to changing information technology and contemporary information sources. We think of information literacy more as a “state of mind” or “way of being” centered on a set of intellectual dispositions like healthy skepticism and creative curiosity that lead to disciplined and analytical inquiry and culminate in good judgment about thoughtfully marshaled information. Librarians work with faculty and staff to create engaging assignments and activities, present workshops to students in their classes, and meet individually with students doing research.
