Evolve at MLA/DLA 2018: Assessing Graduate Schools based on Library Resources

IMG_0501Looking for a new tool to measure students’ information literacy comprehension? Join speaker Semhar Yohannes in this MLA/DLA session on May 3rd to learn how a mid-size university library instruction program developed a summative assessment tool to evaluate prospective graduate schools based on their library resources and services.

The assessment tool, a participatory-designed checklist developed collaboratively with students and librarians, lets students practice their newly developed information literacy skills of determining the extent of information needed; accessing needed information effectively and efficiently; and understanding the economic and legal issues surrounding the use of information and access. The tool works best for students exploring graduate schools but can be modified for community college students.
