Faculty from two engineering departments teamed with Florida Gulf Coast University’s STEM Librarian to develop an instructional module for delivery in the introductory engineering course in an effort to increase the student’s awareness of both the resources available through the library as well as methodology of discriminating amongst multiple references. This paper will detail the information literacy module components, briefly describe the course in which it is placed, summarize the related project assignments, and present an analysis of various student project reference sections to begin to quantify the potential impact of the module on student performance. Assignment modifications over various semesters as well as the future direction of the research will also be included.
