Information Literacy continues to be a major initiative at SUNY Ulster. In 1996, this initiative led to the development of a course, Information Literacy (LIB 111), which received the Association of College and Research Library (ACRL) Innovation in Instruction Award.
In 1999 the SUNY Office of Library & Information Services awarded SUNY Ulster the contract to provide a web-based information literacy template that is currently available to all SUNY campuses. The most innovative aspect of the program is that it is taught primarily by teaching faculty.
LIB111 gives students the skills they need to be informed consumers of information.
LIB 111 is a prerequisite or corequisite for students enrolling in ENG 102, ENG 172, or ENG 227. The course is offered both on-ground and online.
