New Information Literacy Mission Statement!

Projects & Activities - 17 December 2015 - 8:52am

Purdue Libraries presents a new information literacy mission statement:

Purdue University Libraries’ research-based information literacy programming empowers Purdue’s diverse communities of learners to use information critically to learn and to create new knowledge, fostering academic, personal, and professional success.

A team of Libraries faculty (Catherine Fraser Riehle, Ilana Stonebraker, and Clarence Maybee) led a process in fall 2015 to revise the Libraries’ information literacy statement to reflect our current mission, which aligns closely with campus goals for learning. The statement was developed through an inclusive process that included input gathered from stakeholders in the Libraries as well as faculty from other departments.

The extended version of the new mission statement is available on Purdue Libraries’ website:

Clarence Maybee, Information Literacy Specialist, presented a poster with Lisa Zilinski from Carnegie Mellon University at the ASIS&T Annual Meeting on data informed learning. Based on informed learning (Bruce, 2008), data informed learning shifts the focus from acquiring generic data-related skills to learning how to use data in disciplinary contexts. The aim of this project is to develop a data literacy framework for higher education that places learning about using data in the context of disciplinary learning.
