The mission of the University Libraries' Information Literacy Program is to help individuals learn how to locate, evaluate, and use information effectively through a variety of means and in collaboration with the teaching faculty.
The Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) defines information literacy as "the set of skills needed to find, retrieve, analyze, and use information."
Information Literacy at ODU
As of Fall 2010, Information Literacy & Research became a general education requirement at ODU.
The Libraries can support your information literacy curriculum in a variety of ways, including our online tutorials, in-class instruction, assignment development, research consultations and more.
