Communications in Information Literacy

Library faculty Jenny Mills, Nicole Fox and Claire Wiley collaborated with First Year Seminar faculty Rachael Flynn and Dana Shaw to design and assess a sequence of assignments to teach students how to evaluate information using the BEAM method, which shifts the focus from what sources are (primary, secondary, popular, scholarly) to a focus on what the writer will do with the information.

The article, “Beyond the Checklist Approach: A Librarian-Faculty Collaboration to Teach the BEAM Method of Source Evaluation” was published in the open access journal Communications in Information Literacy.
