Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Academic librarians have not fully approached the role they could play in embedding sustainability into information literacy: the process of critically accessing, evaluating and using information. This area is a rich opportunity for libraries to help train students to shift their thinking toward more sustainable models. Because libraries are central to students' academic investigations, the work of librarians in embedding information literacy across the curriculum is an obvious place to transform the practices of knowledge inquiry. By adapting the national ACRL standards to the cultural, historical, ecological, economic and local environment at the University of Montana, students will be led to recognize the importance of the sustainability, place and impact of the information.
