Library Information for Faculty: Assessment

Learning and teaching services at the library

Assessment of Information Literacy Skills

The library has been assessing students' information literacy skills and librarians teaching skills since 2007. At this time, our assessment plans at the Touro Libraries include the following:

1. Information Literacy Skills via Library Research 101 via Blackboard

  • Library Research 101 is a self-paced tutorial designed to help students become efficient researchers able to identify, locate, evaluate, and use information while avoiding plagiarism. The tutorial consists of six topics: Internet Search Tips; Database Searching; Finding Books; Academic Research; Academic Integrity; Citations 

2. Faculty evaluation of our teaching library staff

Faculty can assess their students' information literacy skills in a variety of formats, such as minute papers, portfolios, self-assessments, and rubrics. A rubric can be created for assessing one skill at a time, such as an annotated bibliography assignment, or for assessing information literacy skills in general.
