Learn About Research and Library Resources
The library seeks to enable our students to effectively navigate in a complex information society where information resources are diverse, overly abundant, and sometimes inaccurate, and to be able to critically evaluate the resources in order to determine the validity of information provided. Our educational programs and tools are designed to facilitate student success in this complex information society.
The purpose behind information fluency efforts closely matches one of the components of the Macalester Statement of Purpose and Belief.
