Rebecca Hankins

Abstract


Librarians know that information literacy is developed over a lifetime of learning and growth. In this column, Rebecca Hankins discusses the role that archives can play in teaching information literacy to a variety of patrons, from college students to regional community members. She explores the role that diverse and inclusive archival collections can play in helping patrons understand not only the records that exist but also those that are missing. She also shares strategies that librarians and archivists can use to engage students in accessing archival collections as well as constructing new knowledge.—Editor
