The University 101 Information Literacy Unit Instructor Manual describes a three-day information literacy unit that is integrated into first-year experience courses at the University of Kansas.
The University of Kansas Libraries’ staff utilized the “Authority is Constructed and Contextual” frame from the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy in Higher Education to develop a three-day information literacy unit that is integrated into the university’s first-year experience courses. Day one of the unit consists of an information cycle activity where each student analyzes a different source type. Day two asks students to evaluate assigned sources against each other in a bracket style competition. Students participate in a discussion on authority as a criteria for evaluating sources in both academic and non-academic contexts and discuss the value of the sources they’ve been assigned. Day three reviews the source types and evaluative criteria learned in the unit and guides students in how to write an evaluative source annotation. Finally, the unit ends with an annotated bibliography assignment that requires students to apply what they learned throughout the unit to new information sources.
