InfoLit Modules Faculty LibGuide: Introduction

Introduction to InfoLit Modules

The MLK Jr. Library at Los Angeles City College has a subscription to Credo InfoLit Modules. The InfoLit Modules provide high-quality, standards-aligned instructional materials on information literacy and critical thinking skills. They are ideal for supplementing and supporting classroom instruction, online teaching, or student remediation needs.

Modules consist of videos, tutorials and quizzes and can be integrated into your Canvas shell, or linked to directly (students are authenticated through the library proxy). Each lesson also includes a list of Student Learning Outcomes. See the tabs in this Guide for Canvas Links, Deep Links (direct links through proxy), and Embed Codes

For faculty login instruction or copies of quiz reports, contact Librarian Katie Hamilton at hamiltke@lacitycollege.edu
