Abstract
Lofty definitions and academic buzzwords abound, but sometimes you just have to tell it like it is. This was the case at a recent all-faculty conference at Hope College where the library was asked to present on information literacy (IL) and student learning. Forgoing the route of endless eye-glazing charts and statistics overkill, IL was demystified through real life applications and anecdotes—heavy on the humour and wrapped in a coat of urgency. In five minutes, this talk will explain how to illuminate IL in a way that not only makes sense, but also clearly aligns with preexisting institutional goals and mission.
