Social justice is a critical component of information literacy (IL). As librarians we have an obligation to critique the power structures that control information. Instruction librarians at four medium to large, private, Catholic institutions; collaborated to develop IL instruction grounded in social justice. The project involved applying a social justice construct to IL; creating lesson plans and instructional strategies; assessment; and sharing lessons in an open access database.
