Information literacy is near and dear to many librarians' hearts. It forms the foundation of many of the services and programs that reference and instructional librarians develop. In order to meet the changing needs of users and adjust to rapidly progress technology, as well as the expectations of faculty and administrators, it is crucial to remain abreast of new and changing perspectives on IL. Furthermore, discovering novel and useful techniques, assignments, and approaches can help keep IL programming from becoming stagnant and outdated. This annotated bibliography looks at 16 articles from 2011 that purport to examine IL.
