Information Literacy in Art History
In 2003, faculty created a new foundations course for Art History students. As part of the curriculum for this class, librarians teach an instruction session for every section of this class to ensure that all Art History students learn fundamental research skills which they can use throughout their major. Students then write an annotated bibliography which librarians review to assess the effectiveness of instruction and make needed changes.
In 2005/2006, the Fine Arts Library Faculty Committee worked with librarians to create a list of laddered information literacy competencies for each of the four areas in the Department of Art and Art History (see below). These competencies will serve as the basis for integrating information literacy skills into the undergraduate and graduate curricula, which began with the foundations course described above.
