InfoLit Modules Wins Against the Competition
The Council of Chief Librarians Electronic Access & Resources Committee (CCL-EAR), a group from the Community College League of California, reviewed Credo’s InfoLit Modules in comparison to Research Companion by Proquest. The InfoLit Modules scored better in every evaluated category:
|Proquest Research Companion||Credo InfoLit Modules|
|Content - 40%||2||4|
|Interface - 25%||2||3|
|Cost - 15%||3||4|
|Accessibility - 15%||4||5|
|Support - 5%||2||4|
The council recommended that, “Credo’s Information Literacy Modules could be used to replace one-shots for any subject area, to construct a series of scaffolded workshops for students at various levels, to achieve institutional student learning outcomes in information literacy, or as curricular materials for credit-bearing information literacy classes where it is imperative that [student learning outcomes] be measured.”

To address this need, Credo has enhanced the InfoLit Modules with an additional module focused on faculty engagement. Librarians can now further engage faculty and enable them to easily embed information literacy into courses through:
