Information Literacy Partner of the Month

February/March 2016

Congratulations to Dr. Victoria Pass of the Department of Art, who is the SU Libraries’ Information Literacy Partner of the Month for February-March. Caroline Eckardt, Reference and Instruction Services Librarian, nominated her, noting:

Dr. Pass has continually worked with me to develop information literacy sessions for her students studying art and art history. Her research projects ask students to not only consider established scholarship, but also incorporate material from SU Libraries' own special collections, such as graphic posters, historic money, and scrapbooks from the early 20th century. Students are then tasked with discovering as much as possible about these types of objects with the library resources available to them, which is a great skill for them to develop at this level. It is truly a pleasure to work with a professor as dedicated to building her students' research skills as Dr. Pass.
Caroline Eckardt Research/Instructional Librarian

It is for this willingness to creatively work with librarians to help her students develop a strong foundation of research skills that we have chosen Dr. Pass as the SU Libraries’ Information Literacy Partner of the Month for February-March.

In addition to recognizing Dr. Pass on the SU Libraries’ website and social media, we also will purchase a book in her field of study to be added to the Libraries’ collection in her honor.  Please join me in congratulating Vicky Pass.

Sincerely,

Dr. Bea Hardy
Dean of Libraries and Instructional Resources
