Abstract

Librarians in Kentucky have partnered with various organizations and businesses to educate academic and public communities to meet their information needs, both scholarly and popular topics of interest. The Digital Divide provides an arena for the development of partnerships across disciplines and at all grade levels throughout the academy to integrate Information Literacy (IL) standards. Various educational organizations such as the NCATE, NEA and the AAHE have incorporated IL standards into their programming. From the business community, organizations such as the Gates Foundation, BellSouth, and UPS have formed partnerships libraries, to assist IL programs to bridge the Digital Divide. This presentation will be helpful to educators, students, and businesses, because it will discuss how IL standards have been integrated into the curriculum of higher education, fosters collaborative partnerships and how these programs support diversity.
