MBA@Denver Research Guide: Information Literacy

Definition

The Association of College and Research Libraries broadly defines information literacy as “the set of integrated abilities encompassing the reflective discovery of information, the understanding of how information is produced and valued, and the use of information in creating new knowledge and participating ethically in communities of learning.”

Objective

The assignments for the following courses require students to investigate different aspects of the external environment:

  • FIN 4760, Managerial Economics
  • MKTG 4100, Marketing Concepts
  • MGMT 4690, Strategic Management

Specialized subject databases are identified and tutorials provided that focus on particular aspects of the FIN 4760 assignments and listed under the tab with the same name. These are forthcoming for the other two courses.

The objective of this process is for students to be able to use appropriate library databases and assess credibility to provide evidence that is required for their assignments.
