About this video
About the author

In this interview, David Wilson explains how information literacy in university libraries can help students and faculty access, evaluate, and employ information ethically.  In particular, he talks about how the ethical use of information can help to avoid plagiarism through the proper attribution of sources.  Although it may seem that we live in an era in which access to information is effortless, students are in fact having trouble delimiting the results of their searches.  According to Wilson, quality of education can be improved by learning how to properly research a topic and by developing a critical approach to evaluating information.
