Understanding a discipline requires a fundamental understanding of its terminology. The terminology of information literacy, used by librarians and professors, comprises a language integrated within all disciplines. Critical to academic success, it’s often assumed to be widely understood by students.

The students of Graphic Design V, fall 2017, created a 2nd edition of the visual glossary to help students learn this critical terminology. This edition, incorporated more campus-specific set of terms. It includes table vinyls, collector backpack buttons, digital screen images, and an online What Information Literacy Term Are You? quiz.
