Many colleges and universities are actively developing and implementing curricular initiatives to develop students’ digital information literacy in an effort to prepare the next generation for lifelong learning and with critical thinking skills. Overall, each of these efforts are earnest attempts to consistently provide students with digital information literacy skills, yet each as an approach has fallen short of the digital information retrieval and information evaluation standards outlined by the Association of College and Research Libraries. This highlights the need to develop a comprehensive solution approach to integrating digital information literacy outcomes into higher education courses. This paper focuses on improving a student’s capability for information retrieval and information evaluation through inclusion of digital information literacy outcomes into core course curricula and offers a proposed integrated solution approach involving faculty, academic librarians, information technology administration and students to effectively incorporate digital information literacy skills into a post-secondary courses and curricula.
