Information Technology Collaboration

While information literacy is related to information technology skills which enable students to use computers, software applications, databases and other technologies to achieve a wide variety of academic, work-related and personal goals, information literacy is the “intellectual framework for understanding, finding, evaluating, and using information – activities which may be accomplished in part by fluency with information technology, in part by sound investigative methods, but most important, through critical discernment and reasoning.” Information literate students develop necessary technology skills that are increasingly interwoven with and support information literacy. Therefore, it is critical that librarians, Faculty and information technology staff collaborate to ensure students have the appropriate information technology support essential to the success of UNH Law’s Information Literacy Plan.
