Information Literacy Prize Lives On with Support from CCC Foundation

Thanks to the generosity of the Clatsop Community College Foundation, the Information Literacy Prize will be awarded this spring. $1200 in cash awards will be dispersed directly to students. Since 2013, the prize has been funded entirely through cash raised by selling coffee in the Library. Due to the pandemic, however, this revenue stream is no longer available.

The college library created the award to recognize student understanding and application of information literacy knowledge, otherwise known as research skills: the ability to find, access, and use a variety of information sources; the critical evaluation of information; an understanding of intellectual property; and ability to appropriately incorporate information into a college project. This knowledge reflects recursive learning and is acquired over the course of study at Clatsop Community College in multiple courses taught by campus faculty and the college librarian.

Each Spring, students submit their best research projects to the college librarian who evaluates the submissions using information literacy criteria. In spring 2020, six students won cash awards. All six students illustrated a strong grasp of the rapidly evolving world of information, as well as the ability to incorporate authoritative information into their own research.

The library is currently closed due to the COVID-19 crisis, but the college is offering a host of services to students including contactless loans, tutoring, laptop checkout and access to our digital resources. Streaming movies, electronic books, magazines, newspapers and academic journals are readily available at For more information, contact Dan McClure, Library Director, at
