    Abstract:
    We suggest a new approach to information literacy for students: let faculty do it. Let librarians concentrate less on educating students directly and more time helping non-librarian faculty to integrate information literacy skill building into their courses, and developing the tools and resources to simplify their ability to achieve that integration. Why are we making this radical suggestion? Simply because we doubt librarians are the most effective instructors in these situations. Librarians' skills would be better used in facilitating the work of non-librarian faculty to educate students about information literacy.
