The Institute for Library and Information Literacy Education (ILILE) focuses on providing demonstration projects of local, statewide and national significance. The development of these projects will be accomplished through the creation of a variety of endeavors that will provide leadership in the research and teaching necessary for the integration of information literacy in classroom and library media centers. The institute will focus on activities with PK-12 teachers, library media specialists, pre-service educators, and students working as collaborative peer-learner teaching teams in learning how to use school library media centers and information resources (i.e., print, electronic and web-based) more effectively to enhance student learning. The ILILE has four areas of focus: Education and Training, Curriculum Development, Promotion and Outreach and Research and Evaluation.
