Abstract

While remaining cognizant of several aspects of current information literacy (IL) instruction methods, including threshold concepts, the author re-created experiences shared by students as she searched for, analyzed, and compiled resources pertaining to the Renaissance. Good IL instruction supports education of the whole person, develops new modes of thinking, and defines scholars’ relationships to their disciplines, their institution, and their communities. In short, good information literacy instruction draws from the ideals of the Renaissance and often results in a change of perspective after discovering deeper meanings in materials, concepts, and processes.
