Information Literacy Modules
What is information Literacy?
Information Literacy is a set of abilities associated with accessing, retrieving, and ethically using information. Being able to search for relevant information, evaluate sources, and cite information effectively in a paper or project is important for course work. Also, employers are interested in hiring individuals with information and technology skills who have the ability to evaluate the reliability of information and present it in an effective way. Being information literate can help you be successful in the classroom and in the workplace.
The central activities and missions of a university rest upon the fundamental assumption that all members of the university community conduct themselves in accordance with a strict adherence to academic and scholarly integrity. The UCF commitment and expectations are included in the Faculty Handbook (Ethical Conduct of the University Community, pages 45-47) and in the Golden Rule and its associated UCF regulations (UCF-5.008, http://www.regulations.ucf.edu/chapter5/index.html). Guidance may be found in Information Literacy and the Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning (Classroom Management, Academic Integrity) and is reinforced through the offerings of the University Writing Center, the UCF Libraries and other services on campus.
Research misconduct is defined as fabrication, falsification, or plagiarism in proposing, performing, or reviewing research, or in reporting research results, according to 42 CFR Part 93.
