California State University Channel Islands (CI), Ventura College (VC), Oxnard College (OC), and Moorpark College (MC) all list information literacy as one of their institutional student learning outcomes or general education outcomes. Students enter our regional institutions with varying levels of competency in information literacy (IL). Although the library is often the campus leader in specific information literacy instruction, it is incorporated across the curriculum. This presentation will discuss the creation of a Regional Information Literacy Summit to address IL and transfer student success. The one-day event was focused on allowing for collaboration across institutions to serve a common student outcome and increase transfer student success.
Our aim in creating such an event was to share resources and best practices, ways to infuse IL into the curricula, and methods for assessing effectiveness of IL instruction. The event is designed to include non-librarian teaching faculty in order to engage in meaningful discussions regarding how to incorporate information literacy concepts into assignments and syllabus, how to work collaboratively with librarians on your campus to support these learning outcomes, and to increase awareness of information literacy framework that can help support student success. By aligning efforts across the regional campuses, librarians and faculty can work towards the common goal of moving students to mastering more advanced information literacy concepts before they graduate.

I was a former Registered Dental Hygienist who did a mid-career switch to become a Librarian because I am passionate about the acquisition and preservation of knowledge. I love to learn, so whatever you can share with me, I would love to talk about it!
