Information Literacy Is What Matters to Academic Library Directors

… I mean, unless you’re (meh) Stanley Wilder.

Interesting article and study from the Chronicle of Higher Education.

An excerpt:

Whether they work at a big research university, a small four-year college, or something in between, academic-library directors share a “resounding dedication” to teaching information literacy to undergraduates …

Those findings come out of a 2013 survey of American library directors, released on Tuesday by Ithaka S+R US.

This is also my anecdotal experience; something good to keep in mind if you’re a library school student.

(Thanks to Emily Gover for having this, and all kinds of other great information literacy updates, on her really informative Twitter feed).
