A brief outline of the kinds of instruction done by the Reference Librarian: Using Library Tools ( PDF Format)
The Keeley Library Curriculum Outline is based. on the federally funded Colorado Model Information Literacy Guidelines. Colorado has aligned its own state standards with the American Library Association's Information Power document.. Colorado has also created rubrics for information literacy . (See links below.)
Our broad curricular goals are based on Information Power , on guidelines created by the Colorado Department of Education, Information Literacy Guidelines (PDF Format), and on our own Standards for School Library Media Centers in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
