We are pleased to announce a new OER textbook (and supplementary Canvas
modules) for those teaching Information Literacy concepts:

*Introduction to College Research*

This book acknowledges our changing information landscape, covering key
concepts in information literacy, including: algorithms and the attention
economy, disinformation, information cynicism and information hygiene,
fact-checking, source types, research topics, keyword choices and
confirmation bias, search strategies, library databases, the ethical use of
information, and citation.

The textbook and Canvas modules were created by a team of California
Community College librarians (funded by the ASCCC OERI

   - Walter D. Butler (Pasadena City College)
   - Aloha Sargent (Cabrillo College)
   - Kelsey Smith (West Hills College Lemoore)
   - Cynthia M. Cohen (Los Angeles Valley College)
   - Cynthia Mari Orozco (East Los Angeles College)
   - Xiaoyang Behlendorf (Los Angeles Valley College)

The team will be presenting these resources at the “New OER Resource
Showcase <https://asccc-oeri.org/2021/02/23/new-oer-resource-showcase/>”
