Crisis in Information Literacy  

Colleges and universities are integrating information literacy components into 
current curricula to better prepare students for the global marketplace. Students 
attending Robert Morris University are required to successfully complete five 
communications courses, that include elements of information literacy, as well 
as communication intensive courses in their major. Studentsí inability to 
successfully complete an upper-level research assignment instigated collaboration 
between a librarian and the professor. As a result, students can more successfully 
identify, retrieve, and evaluate information when they receive training that 
involves application exercises.
