Sponsored by Lousiana State University

Easy access to images on the internet means students are using finding and making use of them more than ever, which begs the following questions: Do they fully understand what and why they’re using these images? Are they finding the images they want? Do students care about visual literacy when so much is instantly available to find, copy and paste? In this panel of librarians and LIS faculty, research into the use of images, visual literacy pedagogy and successful examples of visual literacy instruction will be discussed, including the tools and plans used for three different exercises. A varied demographic range of students will be covered: undergraduate, graduate, studio and non-art majors alike. Interviews and surveys with students who have used images in their academic work or participated in visual literacy instruction, or with the faculty who work with these students, have been compiled by each presenter, providing qualitative data regarding the need for, and success of, visual literacy instruction for various academic groups.
