Tutorial on Information Literacy Receives Award

Sue Maberry Recognized by Art Libraries Society of North America

Sue Maberry, Senior Director of Library and Learning Centers, was recently recognized alongside fellow co-creators of the Lynda.com tutorial, Information Literacy with Elsa Loftis. The team received the Worldwide Books Award for Electronic Resources by the Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA). The award recognizes outstanding electronic publications by members in librarianship or visual resources curatorship and the arts.

"In this complex media and political landscape, librarians are providing students with tools they can use to evaluate all the information they find," said Maberry. The tutorial has had over 129,000 views since its launch in the summer of 2015 and received praise for its practical and clear approach to explaining the research process. The Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design (AICAD) acted a sponsor for the project.
