Teaching & assessing information literacy for graduate students

Teaching & assessing information literacy for graduate students
Shawnta Smith, Graduate Center

An overview of information literacy at the Graduate Center as a primarily one-on-one instruction-based process. In this session, participants were led through a Prezi presentation staged as a social network which outlined the collaborative and individualized practices of graduate student instruction.

Notable points of conversation included:
– Characteristics of Graduate Students as a scholarly community
– Digital Instruction and implications for librarians
– Liaison roles and inter-departmental collaborative instruction
– Resource sharing as a primary function of graduate student research thereby, supplying instruction on information in a larger context
– Archival Instruction and use of digital tools for students as content creators
– Scholarly Communication its implications for students who are publishing, presenting papers, considering issues of copyright, and how the library participates in these functions, ie. The Dissertation or The Institutional Repository
