A BASELINE ASSESSMENT OF INFORMATION LITERACY COMPETENCIES OF STUDENTS IN THE SCHOOL OF PUBLIC HEALTH AT THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA AT CHAPEL HILL
A pilot project for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s (UNC) Health Sciences Library, this study uses a survey questionnaire to assess the baseline information literacy competencies of students in UNC’s School of Public Health. The results showed that a majority of graduate students demonstrated a high proficiency in information literacy competencies, but that a significant number of graduate students had important weaknesses in them. The results could be used to inform approaches to information literacy competencies’ instruction and the design of future assessments.
