Curriculum Mapping for Info Lit


Suggestions needed/welcome. I’m working on curriculum mapping for information literacy/library instruction at my new job. We’re trying to incorporate library instruction across programs so that students graduate with at least a basic understanding of information literacy, but also with skills that will help them in the future.
