To promote the teaching and acquisition of information literacy competencies, the DeVry University library has created the Information Literacy LibGuide. This guide provides resources for students who wish to improve their skills in navigating the DeVry library as well as general research skills. The guide also serves as a source of lesson plans and other information (informed by the Association of College and Research Libraries’ Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education) for the use of faculty and librarians to assist students in becoming information literate.
