100% INFORMATION LITERACY SUCCESS, a text in the 100% Success Series, teaches students and professionals to develop crucial information skills to succeed in today's academic and professional environments. The second edition of 100% INFORMATION LITERACY SUCCESS is designed to actively help students develop skills beyond the classroom, focusing on those skills necessary for twenty-first-century learners and workers. Using hands-on learning activities and real-world applications, the text teaches readers how to determine the nature and extent of information needed to solve a problem, how to access the information effectively, how to evaluate the information found, how to use the information for a specific purpose, and how to communicate the information effectively and legally.
- The second edition of 100% INFORMATION LITERACY SUCCESS has been thoroughly updated in its coverage of core skills for twenty-first-century learners, including more on Digital Libraries, plagiarism, and the state of Information Literacy in the twenty-first century.
- New end-of-chapter features include Chapter Summary, Points to Keep in Mind (bulleted highlights from the text), and Check Your Understanding (link for student assessment).
- “Self-Assessment Questions” (previously “Reflection Questions”) cue students toward processing the information presented in the textbook.
- “Case in Point Scenarios” (previously “Chapter Scenarios”) are now paired with “Case In Point Revisited” sections that have been added to the end of each chapter.
- “Learning Objectives,” like those provided on course syllabi, provide students with an outline of what they should be learning from the chapter.
- “Case In Point Scenarios,” found at the beginning of each chapter, are case studies that demonstrate the application of chapter concepts to the real world.
- “Critical Thinking Questions” challenge students to examine ideas and thoughtfully apply concepts presented in the text.
- At the end of each chapter, “Apply It!” activities (formerly named “Learning Activities”) help students apply the concepts discussed throughout the chapter in practical situations.
