Welcome to the High Library's Information Literacy Webpage!
It is one of our primary roles at High Library to teach students information literacy skills and concepts that promote lifelong learning and professional development and that prepare students for lives of civic engagement and public service, supporting the overall mission of Elizabethtown College.
In partnership with Elizabethtown College faculty, our information literacy program delivers course-integrated instruction to students in stages, beginning with broad, introductory research methods and progressing on to a mastery of skills specific to each student’s disciplinary concentration. Throughout each stage, students also learn higher-level “threshold concepts” that aim to deepen their understanding of the research process across disciplines.
