Students majoring in Dietetics have somewhat different information literacy (IL) requirements than do students in other disciplines. To meet this need, an IL workshop tailored for them, incorporating the IL Framework for Higher Education, was offered in two successive years, and pre- and post- assessment was conducted. Data from the assessment showed is the workshop to be successful in increasing students’ knowledge of and ability to apply IL skills, as scores rose significantly in both years’ cohorts. This study presents a novel approach to IL instruction for a specific user group and discusses how to integrate the Framework into undergraduate instruction.
