ATHENS, Ohio (June 17, 2004) -- Julia Zimmerman, Dean of the University Libraries, has announced the 2004 Faculty/Librarian Information Competency (FLIC) grant awardees. They are Robert Houdek, Alden Library, and Chang Liu, assistant professor in electrical engineering and computer science, for CS657: A Software Specification; and Laura Windsor, Alden Library, and William Rau, instructor in health care administration at Southern Campus, for Health 217: Introduction to Health Care Organizations.

McKean, assistant professor in law enforcement technology, for LET 210 Cybernetics.
The Ohio University Libraries established the FLIC grant program in 2001 for the purpose of enriching university courses to address the development of students' information literacy skills. Grants are awarded to partnerships composed of a faculty member and a librarian. Working collaboratively in a variety of ways, the teams redesign course content to increase students' familiarity with information resources and research publications and to engage students in thinking more critically about information. Each team member receives a $1,000 award for their efforts in upgrading the course.
