Abstract

Difficult to teach and learn, information literacy is a set of skills and knowledge that must be mastered through practice. Advances in the learning sciences reveal that students are not receptacles for wisdom deposits. They decide what they will learn. Problem-based learning exploits that insight. It calls for faculty/librarian collaborations. The following articles recount the steps in one such collaboration. Beginning with this article, they in turn, formulate the problem, design a plausible solution, apply that solution, and explore the implications of the process for libraries, librarians, and their resources.
