Event Address: 101 Auburn Avenue Northeast, Atlanta, GA, USA
The Auburn Avenue Research Library (AARL) will host Research 101: Africana Studies as a part of a progressive series of classes facilitated by AARL's Reference and Research staff. These instructional workshops support the ongoing development of foundational information literacy and research skills; promoting library resources and fostering culturally relevant lifelong learning.
Research 101 is an accessible, culturally relevant introduction to information literacy concepts, including critical thinking regarding the construction of information, as well as techniques for accessing and evaluating information. Utilizing the Fulton County Library System's collection of resources, with a special focus on those specific to the AARL, and relating to the Black experience and Africana studies, this course is influenced by Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education, which outlines threshold concepts for the mastery of information and computer literacy, but geared to meet researchers at any skill level.
