Why learn about reading and writing? -- Theoretical foundations of process-based information literacy -- Informal, low-stakes writing -- Reading for comprehension and reading to write -- High-stakes writing-from-sources -- Turning theory into practice.

Broussard approaches the misconceptions about the relationship between libraries as a source of information literacy, and offers suggestions on providing students support when working on research papers.
