Information Literacy Assessment & Advocacy Project (ILAAP)
Librarians at Red Deer College, MacEwan University and the University of Alberta Augustana Campus collaborate on a project, the Information Literacy Assessment and Advocacy Project (ILAAP) in order "to build a robust model for promoting and assessing information literacy skills required for student success." ILAAP is "an assessment tool designed to investigate the information literacy (IL) skills of first and second-year post-secondary students. They are making the ILAAP assessment tool available to other institutions to use with first and second year undergraduate courses. Go to http://tinyurl.com/nmk35tk to express interest and go to http://ilaap.ca/invitation-to-use-the-ilaap-assessment-tool/ for more information. "Please note that depending on the level of interest, we may limit participation based on capacity, and so the tool may not be made available to all interested libraries at this time."
