About the KYVL-LIRT Task Force

The Library Instruction Round Table (LIRT) of the Kentucky Library Association (KLA) has agreed to partner with KYVL in the creation of shareable information literacy instruction based on resources available through KYVL, particularly as it applies to students transitioning from K12 to postsecondary education. KYVL resources are available to nearly 80 percent of Kentucky's K12 students. In addition, over 50 Kentucky postsecondary institutions include KYVL databases among their resources.

In September 2018, the KYVL Leadership Team (LT) approved creation of an ad hoc KYVL-LIRT Task Force. The group is currently being convened and will begin meeting in October.

Charge / tasking

The tasking of the KYVL-LIRT Task Force is to:

  • Identify priorities for information literacy instruction of Kentucky's K12 students
  • Identify information literacy needs for students transitioning to postsecondary education in Kentucky
  • Prioritize development of instructional materials
  • Create instructional materials based on KYVL resources for preparing Kentucky's students for a successful transition to postsecondary education research

Approved 9.24.18
