Clermont College Library's Information Literacy Program seeks to promote the exploration of knowledge and supports students in becoming information literate people who value lifelong learning.
The program accomplishes this mission by developing instructional content that incorporates active learning concepts and Universal Design for Learning. Librarians partner with college departments and faculty to integrate information literacy concepts throughout the curriculum focusing on general education and first-year experience courses face-to-face, online, and hybrid instruction methods.
