This case study describes some tips and lessons learned from a project at St. Cloud State University designed to teach information literacy over the World Wide Web. The information literacy project has two primary components:

  1. Under the auspices of LEO: Literacy Education Online (a project to disseminate resources to improve composition and writing skills), to develop content resources providing guidance in library and internet use and application in research;
  2. Under the Center for Information Media, to disseminate self-paced instructional modules on library and internet use and application in research that could be used in credit-generating courses.

As the two components exhibited considerable overlap, it was decided to develop inter-related resources within a single project environment.


Note: Many of the links noted in this document no longer work; the actual project described in this document was removed from the Web many years ago.
