Information Literacy

Provides information meant to facilitate integration of information literacy (Kean University's GE Skill 5) into the curriculum.

LEARN: Library Essentials for Access and Research Navigation

Although parts of the LEARN Blackboard module were designed for students enrolled in the Research and Technology (GE 202x) and Transfer Transitions (GE 3000) courses, the module will support all undergraduate and graduate students.

Students and faculty members can access the LEARN Blackboard module in one of two ways:

  • Most students and faculty members have been enrolled automatically in LEARN and will see “LEARN: Library Essentials for Access and Research Navigation” listed under “My Courses” within their own Blackboard accounts.
  • Students and faculty members who do not see “LEARN: Library Essentials for Access and Research Navigation” listed under “My Courses” may “self-enroll” by following the steps demonstrated in the LEARN Self-Enroll Video or on the LEARN Self-Enroll handout.

Transition to Kean (GE 1000)

The Transition to Kean information literacy module was designed for first-year students enrolled in the GE 1000 course. This module consists of one brief introductory video, four brief interactive tutorials, and one online “assignment.” 

If required by your professor, please complete the online “assignment” provided below after viewing the tutorial modules listed above. Once you have answered the final question, you will be able to email your answers to yourself, and this email message may be submitted to your Transition to Kean (GE 1000) instructor for credit.
