This presentation was given at the WILU 2007 conference. Here's the description from the program:
"Why do I need to know this? Will I ever use it again?" Most undergraduate students look for immediate relevance or demonstrable applicability as a measure of the value of their learning experiences. Librarians work hard to persuade students that information literacy skills will serve them well for their current research needs and throughout their lifetime. We conducted research into the students' beliefs about the current and future relevance and applicability of the skills, concepts, and values taught in the Information Management course. This research contributes to our understanding of how students perceive the relevance of information literacy to their lives today and in the future.
