What is the Lesley Library InfoLit Course?

  • Free up classroom time with ready-made materials for subject-specific instruction
  • Analyze usage and assess student performance with the Credo Insights analytics platform

What are the Lessons?

The Lesley Library InfoLit Course offers a brief but concise collection of modules that cover a number of aspects of information literacy. It has been modified to better suit the needs of Lesley's faculty and students by supplementing the informational literacy sessions provided by Lesley's Research & Instruction Librarians. While it is not meant to replace the sessions themselves, the Lesley Library InfoLit Course seeks to address topics that the sessions may not have had time to effectively cover during class.

The topics addressed are:

  • The importance of information literacy
  • Methods of categorizing sources
  • How to read scholarly materials
  • Citations
  • Academic integrity
