- Make possible an evaluation of the information literacy skills of psychology students by delineating competencies that should be assessed.
- Encourage psychology liaison librarian and psychology faculty collaboration in the teaching of information literacy as a component of research methods in psychology (Thaxton, Faccioli, and Mosby, 2004)."
