Policy & Planning

The Libraries’ Information Literacy Committee develops and promotes an information literacy program for York University Libraries, coordinating library-wide initiatives with department-based instruction and faculty liaison activity. It also develops and carries out an annual set of objectives within the context of a more general five-year set of goals, adjusted annually as necessary.
