Notes

Abstract: This presentation will cover the current curriculum mapping project at the University of North Texas Libraries. As part of a greater Information Literacy Initiative, this project seeks to improve the capacity of UNT students for critical thinking and the ability to use information effectively with a key aim of the project being to help strengthen core library services to enhance high-impact practices. Through curriculum mapping, UNT seeks to establish a baseline understanding of the current information literacy practices and needs on campus. Student learning outcomes from course syllabi have been mapped to the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education and the AAC&U Information Literacy VALUE Rubric. With information gleaned from this project, the UNT Libraries have identified which core courses address which standards and frames, identify gaps in library instruction, and begin to address these gaps through the work of our subject librarians and strategically targeted library instruction.
