Clark Memorial Library has a new online information literacy resource from Credo for you to incorporate into your classes. The Credo Instruct Information Literacy Modules include videos, tutorials, and quizzes that are based on information literacy concepts from the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education. Examples include library instruction topics you may be familiar with such as narrowing your topic and search techniques. Other examples of modules include primary and secondary sources, the anatomy of a research paper, and synthesizing information. The content in each module can be incorporated into your Blackboard course including adding quizzes to your gradebook.
The tabs to the right contain the titles of each video, tutorial, and quiz available to you. The titles are linked for you to preview. The "Ways to Use Credo Content" tab provides some ways you can incorporate this contact, be it alone or with a librarian face-to-face session. Contact information for your department's librarian liaison is included on that page. Finally, both the deep links and the LTI links are included in the last tab along with instructions for how to embed the content in your Blackboard site.
If you have questions about the use of this content and/or ways to partner with a librarian in this process, please contact Marla Beebe at firstname.lastname@example.org or 740-351-3461 or your librarian department liaison.

Credo provides a pre-test and a post-test to assess students' information literacy knowledge. Please let me know if you'd like to administer either test to your students.
