Project SAILS

From October 17 through November 11, the University Library will be administering the Standardized Assessment of Information Literacy Skills (SAILS) to Samford undergraduate students. This will give us a detailed snapshot of our students’ information literacy skills and will help us to optimize our instructional efforts to meet areas of need. We will need the support of our faculty in encouraging students to connect to the library website and complete the test.

The library will be giving away prizes for taking this test. If you are an undergraduate student, you could win an Amazon Gift Card ($50-$100) or a new iPad. Prizes will be given out on the next five Fridays (10/21 to 11/18).

The test takes 35 minutes on average. For instructions on how to take the test and other information, see
