In this era of overload, information literacy is a necessary skill which enables the lifelong learner to critically analyze and utilize information. More details on Information Literacy are available through the Association of College and Research Libraries of the American Library Association.
Information Literacy Instruction
Many CCM instructors book class time in the LRC Computer Instruction Lab to help their students learn how to find, analyze, and use information. The instruction sessions are taught by a CCM librarian in the Learning Resource Center.
Students who need in-depth assistance may make an appointment with a librarian for individual instruction. To arrange for assistance, please call 973-328-5296.
