Instructors at the college level expect students to be able to think and read critically, to be able to garner information from varied research sources, and to be able to correctly cite these sources within their written work. The set of skills known as information literacy are vital to successfully implementing these tasks in both college and high school. However, to achieve academic success demands, it must be realized that the skills must be constantly reinforced within the curricula. Therefore, instructors must be mindful of the skills and collaborate with the IL instructors to find ways to embed the skills in the curricula.
