Poster Presented at the IFLA 2012 Congress. In an age of global discourse driven by technology, users of information are also creators of information. They receive information produced informally and formally, and produce from an early age. This worldwide conversation is both immediate and powerful, and calls for responsible engagement. At the Brown University Library, we identified a need to address the information and media literacy skills of our incoming first year students. We sought to design a curriculum which would provide asynchronous, multi-modal instruction across numerous learning environments. Building on the Association of College and Research Libraries Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education, our intention was to more fully address the needs and realities of our community. We synthesized six global, national, and local frameworks relating to information needs and use into common instructional goals designed to support the needs of our learners.
