Thank you for your commitment to developing and nurturing information literacy in our students. The ability to effectively find, evaluate, and use information is an essential 21st Century skill. Information literacy improves a student's academic, professional, and real world success, and is every bit as vital as reading, writing, and performing essential mathematical calculations.

Students in 2017 have access to -- and are often bombarded with -- far more information in than most of us did when we ourselves were in college. In many ways this is a miraculous boon; in other ways it is overwhelming and often downright dangerous.  By embedding meaningful research assignments into our courses  -- assignments that allow students to acquire, practice, and master information literacy skills -- we can all do our part to insure our student's emerge from Modesto Junior College with the skills needed to flourish in the Information Age.
