Spring 2015


A large portion of the activities of information professionals have become educational in the digital age. Information literacy and inclusion are the crux of the public good that all information organizations provide to their users. Librarians, often utilizing public access technology, assist users with locating and understanding information; archivists need to guide users through materials; and information managers need to train employees to effectively use new systems. This course will focus on the educational and psychological dimensions of helping and supporting new users to become information literate and experienced users to remain included.
