The American Library Association has developed this site as a gateway (and a gathering place) for those looking for resources and discussion on information literacy focused on "improving the teaching, learning, and research role of the higher education community." Visitors arriving at the site would do well to first take a look at the overview section, which offers an introduction to information literacy, and a number of resources for faculty who hope to address the subject of information literacy in their courses. The section also has an excellent standards toolkit, which serves as an integrated set of tools, web pages, and other resources that will help various academic professionals incorporate these tools into their work. Visitors will also want to take a close look at the additional resources and ideas area, which includes information about assessment issues, collaborative efforts in information literacy, and examples of course syllabi that incorporate information literacy. Finally, the site also has an option that allows visitors to sign up to become part of the information literacy instruction listserv.
