Library Information Literacy Mission Statement
The Library Information Literacy Program at Palm Beach State College supports the instructional mission of the College and its General Education program. Information literacy is one of the College’s institutional learning outcomes and is rooted in “the ability to find, evaluate, organize, and use information”.

The Library Information Literacy Program is an integrated, outcomes-based model of instruction that incorporates different forms of instruction at selective points in a student's academic life. The intent of the program is to achieve a tiered and coordinated approach to developing information literacy skills and a framework for lifelong learning. This approach incorporates information literacy and critical thinking with writing across the curriculum.
Specifically, the mission of the Library Information Literacy Program is to create an environment which:
