In 2009 the Research and Instructional Services Department at Raynor Memorial Libraries at Marquette University, began using the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education to track and assess the information literacy competencies of instructional sessions. Instructional sessions were entered into a locally developed database and mapped to the ACRL information literacy standard(s) addressed in each session, as perceived by the librarian. Students who participated in a research consultation session were surveyed on their perception of the information literacy standards addressed in the session and overall effectiveness of the session. Responses from the students and librarians were collected and correlated for an in-depth look at information literacy standards in research consultations conducted in 2010.
