Abstract

The Core Competencies for Research and Information Literacy at UCLA provides a foundation for teaching and evaluating research skills and information literacy.

This document provides:

* a concise summary of the core competencies and their relationship to the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy;

* a toolkit of learning outcomes, activities, and assessment techniques for each core competency;

* and an example assessment rubric.
