The FLASH acronym represents
the information literacy plan in the Learning Resources Centers.
FLASH combines materials, activities, and delivery methods in a deliberate
move from teaching mechanics to teaching critical thinking. Designed
to align with performance indicators of the information literacy
core competency, FLASH provides criteria for assessment. As students
gain transferable skills that they can use to search a library catalog,
electronic database, or the Internet they also learn about the evaluation
and ethical use of information. These are the skills they can use
in their pursuit of lifelong learning.
