The Big 6

What is the Big 6?

The Big 6 is an information literacy model. Some people call it a metacognitive scaffold, or an information problem solving strategy. Developed by Mike Eisenberg and Bob Berkowitz, the Big6 is the most widely-known and widely-used approach to teaching information and technology skills in the world. When you apply the Big 6 steps, you have an essential framework to approach any information-based question.

The Big 6 is taught by our Librarians in our Library Curriculum.
