dc.description.abstractResearch into the development of an online information literacy dictionary/encyclopedia following the Creative Commons standards. Project Description The project consists of preliminary research into the development of an online information literacy (IL) toolbook to promote information and digital fluency. This virtual resource will contain several pedagogical elements - a dictionary, encyclopedia, and instructional modules. This will include definitions of pertinent words and terms from information literacy curriculum, e.g., Boolean operators and digital piracy. Each definition will link to a supporting page providing examples, web links to relevant sources, and instructional assignments. At this time there is no resource that provides a central informational utility for supporting student information literacy needs. This tool offers to fill a void for students as well as faculty at both the statewide and national levels. It will incorporate key concepts at multiple levels. First, it will provide a dictionary defining pertinent words and terms from IL curriculum, e.g., Proximity searching and Cyberterrorism. Second, it will provide an encyclopedia in which each dictionary definition will link to a supporting page detailing each term, with an overview, history, and relevant examples. Additionally, the entries will contain sections designed to spark deeper thinking for student exploration by hyperlinking to relevant sources (for example, the page for Fair Use could link to the online video A Fair(y) Use Tale). Lastly, for pedagogical purposes, the resource will provide access to term-specific lesson plans (best practice examples) to foster sharing and collaboration across SUNY campuses and beyond. IL Fox Objectives Users of this resource will • Learn IL terminology, history, context, and applications • Have 24/7 access to a centralized IL resource • Have shared access to instruction materials for use in teachingen_US
