Welcome to the Information Literacy Research Guide

September, 2012

Welcome to the Information Literacy Research Guide. The Carmichael Library, alongside the Quality Enhancement Plan office, is committed to the goal of increasing the information literacy of the students attending the University of Montevallo.  Information Literacy is the foundation for lifelong learning, and it extends across the curriculum to touch every discipline.  This guide contains a growing collection of links, resources, and information to support information literacy learning outcomes.

The image is of a rhizome, which we feel is a great metaphor for the challenge of information literacy instruction.  Rhizomes are also apt metaphors for information itself.  At any point, a rhizome can be connected to itself.  It may be shattered or broken at any given spot, but it will start up again on one of its old lines, or on new news.  Rhizomes are messy, unpredictable, and unwieldy.  Our challenge is teaching and then assessing a complex  literacy, and this guide is designed as a resource for IL conversations across the campus.


QEP Testimonials

As the Fall 2012 semester develops, we will be releasing a series of podcast conversations with UM faculty members as they reflect on their own QEP-related pedagogical development.  This first clip is a conversation between Andrew Battista and Laurel Hitchcock.  Stay tuned for the full episode.
