New information literacy course available on lynda.com

Information Literacy Tutorial Image

The AICAD Library Directors Group is pleased to share the exciting news that our yearlong information literacy collaboration with lynda.com has produced a marvelous one hour and forty-eight minute tutorial which went live last week (1,330 views as of this afternoon!).

For those of you with lynda.com access, you can review the course today (search for Information Literacy and it will pop right up). For those of you who do not have access to lynda.com, you can still see some free preview portions of the tutorial which are unlocked on thelynda.com site, or you can also activate a free trial.

We hope you will find ways to integrate this tutorial into your instructional programs at your respective colleges, and please share news of this course with your library staff, students and faculty. Our task force was committed to carrying an art and design theme throughout the course to make sure it was particularly relevant to art school students, even though the tutorial will reach a much wider audience.

Members of the task force:

– Elsa Loftis, Oregon College of Art and Craft
– Sue Maberry, OTIS
– Lauren MacDonald, formerly CCA but now at San Francisco Art Institute
– Tony White, formerly MICA but now at Metropolitan Museum of Art
– Jennifer Martinez Wormser, Laguna College of Art + Design

The task force would also like to express a special thank you to Lee Ann Adams and Deborah Obalil at AICAD for their support of this endeavor.
