Library, First Year Seminar Faculty Publish Journal Article in ‘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.
