ILAC at Wartburg - Overview

Information Literacy at Wartburg

At Wartburg, information literacy is embedded in the Plan of Essential Education. This is referred to as ILAC: Information Literacy Across the Curriculum. Critical information literacy skills and concepts are scaffolded throughout the college career. Introductory skills are taught in IS 101 and reinforced in additional general education courses such as IS 201, EN 115, and Com 112. Developing skills are integrated into the majors, enhanced throughout, and then assessed at the proficient level, usually in the capstone.


Students will make effective use of library and other information resources in order to participate as knowledgeable, responsible members within their disciplines and society.
