New Tutorials and More Added to Information Literacy – Core

The information literacy landscape is constantly changing. Technologies and the ways in which people communicate evolve. Content is produced and distributed so quickly and across so many formats that it can feel overwhelming to keep up. Skills that allow students to find, evaluate, and communicate information have never been more important.  To reflect this environment, the multimedia content in Information Literacy – Core is regularly updated, responding to trends and changes while always teaching and maintaining at its core the essential critical-thinking skills students need to be discerning users and creators of information.
