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 new general education requirement at ODU.

The Libraries were called in to assist faculty with fulfilling the information literacy requirement. To this end, we created seven Information Literacy Modules, and we provide seminars and roundtables to disseminate information about information literacy standards.  

Subject-specialist reference librarians are available for consultation, assistance with assignments, and in-person class sessions.

Contact Rachel Lux ( for more information about the program.
