Abstract: Information literacy has evolved to encompass a variety of skills as technology and the availability of information has increased. It is a fundamental concept of academic librarianship and the need for students to obtain these skills has increased as colleges and universities begin to globalize their curricula and include global readiness in institutional missions. This article reports survey data collected during a librarian-faculty collaboration to determine the effect of information literacy instruction on students participating in Anthropology: Global Understanding classes. Changes in the students’ information literacy skills, successful teaching strategies, and their connection to global readiness are discussed.
