Academic libraries play a pivotal role in the success of at-risk students by helping to develop their information literacy skills. This paper describes the experience at the University of Northern Colorado where librarians teamed with the campus program supporting at-risk students to tie a one-credit information literacy course to their freshmen English composition class. The team taught, hands-on course structure is described, along with a discussion of exercises and practical tips.
