InfoLit Modules: The future of research instruction starts now!

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.”

*New* Faculty Engagement Module

Teaching information literacy in the 21st century is an increasingly important task, one best addressed when both librarians and faculty are able to reach students. 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:

  • Tutorials and videos covering faculty-centered topics such as “How to design research assignments”
  • Ready-made, topic based teaching guides
  • Simplified “how-to” processes integrating the Modules with your LMS or LibGuides

How can the InfoLit Modules help you & your library?

  • Make your library a leader in IL instruction at your institution
  • Teach students foundational and topical IL issues, like evaluating sources for credibility and recognizing fake news
  • Enhance instruction with engaging multimedia
  • Scale across multiple courses or campus-wide easily with consistent baseline materials
  • Maintain accreditation requirements around information literacy standards
  • Support students in-person and online
  • Free up your staff to focus on instruction rather than creating materials
  • Evaluate students’ usage and skills with the Credo Insights analytics platform

How can you use the InfoLit Modules?

  • Enhance one-shot and embedded library instruction
  • Supplement your existing information literacy courses
  • Engage professors on IL strategies and best practices with faculty-specific modules and ready-made instructional materials
  • Deliver point of need instruction with on-demand viewing of embedded materials
