Among the stated values of Logan University is being evidence-informed. The Learning Resources Center (LRC) supports this value by providing the support needed to ensure that individuals have the intellectual abilities of reasoning and critical thinking. As librarians, we are here to help you construct a framework for learning how to learn. Information literacy is a key component for lifelong learning, especially in today's information age.
"Chiropractic's future success in the health care marketplace will depend on the adoption and the chiropractic colleges developing evidence-based curricula" (Giordano, 2002) and programming requiring students to be information literate within a community of learners.
The Council of Chiropractic Education (CCE) has established standards for student research competencies, specifically that students will be able to "use relevant scientific literature and other evidence to inform patient care."
This guide provides an outline for information literacy standards.
