The BHCC Library follows ALA/ACRL definitions and standards for Information Literacy. We look at Information Literacy as a set of skills that:
The bulk of the library's work in Information Literacy outreach is accomplished through the Workshop program, which serves 3,500 to 5,000 students per calendar year.
Workshop content is most often the direct result of a collaboration between an instructor and the presenting librarian to ensure practical application of the session's content.
To make the workshop as useful as possible for BHCC students, librarian instructors ask for any pertinent assignments, the class's syllabus. Expectations for the library workshop session are also discussed.
Workshop objectives and goals may be based on previous sessions for that class or topic, or they may be tailored to the class's particular needs as discovered through the collaboration process.
