Promoting information literacy skills for youth through reference services

The development of information literacy skills for youth is more relevant than ever. Librarians have unique opportunities to integrate information literacy while providing reference services to youth.

New innovations have increased opportunities for librarians to use a wide variety of digital and social tools to engage youth online. Youth have direct access to a wide range of informational resources that may or may not be authoritative, credible, current or accurate. Thus, facilitating development of information literacy skills and providing research assistance and outreach are especially important for those librarians serving youth.

In this discussion, we would like to share strategies for creating an information literacy instructional plan, facilitating collaborative partnerships with community partners, educators and parents, strategies for integrating information literacy instruction through reference services and evaluating and assessing information literacy needs.
