About

Guarantee+ and the University Libraries:

Starting in the Fall of 2022, all undergraduate programs will be integrated into the Guarantee+ Program - link to our webpage on integration into G+. As each undergraduate program is integrated into Guarantee+, the University Libraries will create three Information Literacy Milestones. This work is being coordinated by each academic program's librarian/liaison and the faculty in those departments. When you are enrolled into Guarantee+, you will be required to complete the three Information Literacy Milestones for your major. All Ohio University students will complete the Information Literacy Milestone 1 during their first semester at Ohio University. 

How to use this repository: 

This repository will serve as an access point for all Information Literacy Milestones for each of the undergraduate programs. Select your college from the left-hand menu and then select your major. Each Information Literacy Milestone will be identified and a completion date or the course in which it will be completed within.
