Information literacy is a way of defining, thinking about, and teaching the research process. Put simply, information literacy involves not only research skills, but also problem-solving and critical thinking.
The USC Upstate Library Information Literacy Program supports the strategic initiative of creating career relevant and accessible education through partnership with classroom faculty, educational support staff, and administrators. The Program supports the following Spartan Ready competencies:
(1) Communication; (2) Creativity and Problem-solving; and (3) Application of Information Technology.
With increasing confidence, students will develop the following skills as they learn to search, read, think, and contribute in an engaged and iterative process.
