Information literacy is knowing how to:
- access information efficiently and effectively.
- evaluate information critically and competently.
- use information appropriately for different purposes in a variety of contexts.
Information literacy advances first-year students’ critical thinking skills and prepares them to assess whether information is appropriate to use in their academic writing and research.
Ms. Morgan can also meet one-on-one with students for research consultations that will help them organize the research efforts required for University Seminars and first-year courses in writing and rhetoric.
Research consultations help students:
- navigate the vast information resources available through the Hesburgh Libraries.
- develop a research strategy that will maximize the use of those resources
You will find our first-year librarian:
- in rooms 111 and 112 on the first floor of the Hesburgh Library (Current Periodicals area).
- in the First Year of Studies on the second floor of the Coleman-Morse Center.
- at the Information Desk on the first floor of the Hesburgh Library.
