The deadline to apply for USC Libraries' Undergraduate Information Literacy Course Enhancement Grants has been extended to March 9, 2018 at noon.
From literature reviews to research papers to creative works, information literacy concepts and skills – the set of abilities encompassing the discovery of information, how information is produced and valued, and the use of that information in creating new knowledge – are used in every discipline and throughout the research process. This grant opportunity is designed to spur curricular implementation, through re-design of a syllabus and/or assignment, of the USC Libraries Information Literacy Outcomes for Undergraduates.
Grant recipients will be awarded $200 to attend an information literacy workshop in March or April 2018, and work with a librarian to integrate information literacy into a course or assignment.
All USC faculty (full- or part-time) who teach at least one undergraduate course in 2017-18 or 2018-19 are eligible. For more information or to apply, go to libguides.usc.edu/ilgrants.
