Information Competency Course
Information Competency (LIBRY 3)

This course (LIBRY 3: Information Competency) was developed based on Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education from the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) and the proposed revision of Title 5 Regulations on Information Competency (Item 5, Attachment 2) from the Consultation Council of California Community Colleges. It is aimed at preparing students to become information literate citizens of the 21st century.

According to the national standards from ACRL, an information literate person is capable of performing the following:
  • Determine the extent of information needed
  • Access the needed information effectively and efficiently
  • Evaluate information and its sources critically
  • Incorporate selected information into one's knowledge base
  • Use information effectively to accomplish a specific purpose
  • Understand the economic, legal, and social issues surrounding the use of information
  • Access and use information ethically and legally
Information Competency is a graduation requirement at California State University. LIBRY 3 is a CSU-transferrable course, and it is currently going through the articulation with the University of California.
