Mission of Information Literacy Program
The Lewis J. Ort Library Information Literacy Program empowers Frostburg State University students to be confident users and creators of information in a dynamic and continually evolving information landscape. We prepare students to think critically about the information that they encounter and create, in a variety of forms, both within and outside of academia. This also includes facilitating access to the research databases, collections and services available through the Ort Library. Our underlying goal is to support the information literacy needs of all members of the Frostburg State University academic community through classroom and online instruction, research assistance, and campus-wide collaboration.
