Academic librarians are increasingly instructing targeted groups within the academic environment. Such groups include freshman learning communities, international students, graduate students, and faculty. Each of these groups is far from homogenous because of the diversity of their expectations of libraries and their information-seeking experiences. Even into the twenty-first century, many faculty members, for example, are reluctant to use electronic resources. How can we develop instruction programs that will address the shared needs of such groups and the diverse needs of individuals? What assessment tools are available to measure the success of such programs? How can we identify constituencies being underserved? Manuscripts are sought that describe successful (and even unsuccessful) approaches to information literacy for targeted groups and/or diverse populations in higher education. Manuscripts are also sought that report on quantitative or qualitative evaluations of the impact of information literacy programs, courses, and components of courses.
