InfoQuest: A New Twist on Information Literacy by Peggy Milam Creighton, Ph.D.
Designed to motivate students to do more research, InfoQuest ensures that information literacy skills are continuously practiced.
Using InfoQuest, each week a different research question is posed. Students have all week to come to the media center and use a variety of reference tools and media to research the answer. Small prizes are awarded on Friday to the students who have researched the answer correctly. This guide to implementing InfoQuest in your library includes a wealth of ready-made resource sheets for specific subject areas as well as a list of resources for individualizing the program to meet your specific needs.
