Abstract

Information literacy is essential for successful expeditions into the ever‐expanding knowledge frontier. Faculty and librarians can guide each other, and the learners they serve, past wastelands to fertile soil and reliable wells to sustain inquiry and cultivate deeper understanding in their fields of study. The authors present definitions of information literacy, describe challenges in promoting it, and offer possible solutions for promoting faculty‐librarian collaboration on information literacy.
