UW-Madison Libraries Info Literacy Instruction
Interactive Data Visualization

Information literacy is the set of integrated abilities encompassing the reflective discovery of information, the understanding of how information is produced and valued, and the use of information in creating new knowledge and participating ethically in communities of learning (Association of College & Research Libraries, 2016).

This data visualization comes from a combination of 2 data sources: 1) UW-Madison Libraries instruction session statistics; 2) Student enrollments for corresponding course sections. Library staff record an entry each time they provide information literacy instruction or otherwise visit a course. These sessions are recorded and maintained by the Libraries' Teaching & Learning Programs office.
