Faculty Guide to Information Literacy – Core

What is Credo's Information Literacy–Core?

Credo's Information Literacy–Core is a set of online videos, tutorials, and quizzes covering information literacy. Your library has subscribed to Information Literacy–Core and it is free for you and students to use, on campus or off.


The resource aims to:

  • Help students learn how to find relevant and reliable library and other research materials
  • Formulate appropriate, workable research questions
  • Synthesize what they learn into a final product such as a research paper, including citations that are apt for their field

Wondering how Information Literacy–Core works in real-life classrooms? This brief case study illustrates how Teri Catanio, an instructor and Director of the Career Center at Cairn University, PA, used Information Literacy–Core to increase her students' research and writing abilities. The gains were immediate and persisted long-term, making the professors work easier and the students more successful.
