This workshop asks attendees to consider how they became information literate as well as how their sense of being information literate has impacted their expectations of the students in the courses they TA. This workshop will provide a brief overview of information literacy and will cover recognizing when students have an information need; the library resources available to help undergrads catch up; course-related library services and tools that support TAs in addressing these gaps.
