Abstract
This poster presents interviews conducted with undergraduate students who worked with archival collections to learn about their experiences and mapping major job responsibilities and activities to learning outcomes. These are examined using concepts from ACRL’s Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education, ACRL Visual Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education, and the SAA/ACRL/RBMS Joint Task Force on the Development of Guidelines for Primary Source Literacy. This research suggests that student worker experiences play a fundamental role in shaping lifelong information literacy skills and help libraries strategically communicate impacts on student learning, retention, success, and workplace readiness.
