Information Literacy Framework Resources

At Broward College, Information Literacy is one of the General Education learning outcomes. The Association of College & Research Libraries defines information literacy as

the set of integrated abilities encompassing the reflective discovery of information, the understanding of how information is produced and valued, and the use of information in creating new knowledge and participating ethically in communities of learning. 

For more information, visit the  Framework for Information Literacy page on the Association of College & Research Libraries website. 
As faculty, Broward College librarians teach information literacy through library instruction sessions.

APA Quick Tips

  • Check out the Broward College Libraries' comprehensive APA Guide for additional, comprehensive APA assistance.
  • All statistics (any information that contains percentages or numbers, for example) require both an in-text and References page citation. 
  • Remember to partially quote or paraphrase to show that you have read and understood the source materials you are using. Avoid blocks of direct quoting, particularly without introducing your own ideas first!
  • For help with creating References entries (especially for sources you did not retrieve from a library database), use a reliable online citation generator, such as NoodleTools or check out our Tips for Using the Microsoft Word References Tool.
