The authors propose a course-integrated, across-the-curriculum model for information literacy to enhance the curricular and educational mission of institutions of higher education to college students who will become lifelong learners. They examine the issues - and obstacles - involved in establishing such a program, getting faculty and administrative support, and working toward curricular change. The roles of faculty and librarians, as well as the importance of their collaboration and cooperation in achieving a common goal, are discussed. Although many agendas in higher education compete with information literacy, the authors suggest ways that obstacles to an across-the-curriculum information literacy program can be overcome to ensure that students become capable users of information.
