Information overload and global competition are among the most significant challenges to all professors. Students need to be information literate to survive not just in the workplace but also to excel in the global environment. Librarians can collaborate with teaching faculty to help achieve this goal. This article investigates how librarians at San Jose State University collaborate with teaching faculty in nurturing students for them to become lifelong learners. It also outlines programs and tools developed by librarians to help students enhance their information literacy skills.
