Information Literacy @ TCC

The TCC General Education Assessment Plan characterizes the core competency of "information literacy" by the following description:

"A person who is competent in information literacy recognizes when information is needed and has the ability to locate, evaluate, and use it effectively. TCC graduates will demonstrate the ability to determine the nature and extent of information needed; access needed information effectively and efficiently; evaluate information and its sources critically and incorporate selected information into his or her knowledge base; use information effectively, individually or as a member of a group, to accomplish a specific purpose; and understand many of the economic, legal, and social issues surrounding the use of information and access and use information ethically and legally."
