Since the Project SAILS team came together in 2001, we have made it our mission to help academic librarians understand their students’ information literacy knowledge. We have made updates to the SAILS assessment, established both an individual and cohort test, and strived to keep the needs of academic librarians in mind.
Today we are building upon this mission with the launch of our blog!
Our hope is that this blog will become a resource center for academic librarians on all things information literacy. This includes:
- Links to great resources to use in your course instruction and to share with your students
- Tutorials and other resources to supplement one-shot information literacy sessions
- Archiving and sharing great articles, blog posts, and more that we find on the topic of information literacy
- Important news releases related to Project SAILS
- Guest posts from experts on information literacy
- Case studies of how institutions are using Project SAILS
- Resources to share with non-library faculty to use in classroom instruction
- Lesson plan/course instruction ideas for each skill set of information literacy
We also want this blog to be a way for academic librarians to have conversations with our team. So if you have any questions, suggestions, ideas for blog posts, or if you have specific needs for your course instruction that you would like us to address – please let us know!
