Contribute to the RAILS (Rubric Assessment of Information Literacy Skills) Project

The IMLS-funded Rubric Assessment of Information Literacy Skills (RAILS) project is designed to help academic librarians and faculty assess student information literacy skills. However, there is a growing number of rubrics included on the RAILS site that focus on non-instructional library services.

Currently, most are created by Syracuse iSchool students, but practicing librarians are most welcome to post their own library service rubrics as well.

To add a rubric, simply become a site participant (look for the pink tab) and fill in the short form. Then you can “make and save” derivations of any existing rubric or use a blank form to create your own. If you need help, please contact me at
