Information Fallout: Information Fallout is a narrative-based learning tool designed to introduce information literacy skills to students. It is based around attaining and using six “Info Tactics:”

  • Consider the context of a source when evaluating it.
  • Consider the creation process when looking at a source.
  • Give credit to other people’s ideas.
  • Ask questions for better research.
  • Appreciate that research evolves over time through the contribution of many researchers.
  • Seek out different sources and types of sources.

Information Fallout was created by librarians at Minitex, an information and resource sharing program of the Minnesota Office of Higher Education and the University of Minnesota Libraries.
