"Developing Information Literacy for the Maritime Curriculum: Strategy and Pedagogy" demonstrates the instructional program of the Stephen B. Luce Library in response to the academic requirements of the maritime curriculum. The paper outlines the strategic directions of the Stephen B. Luce Library in developing a comprehensive plan to integrate information literacy for the core curriculum in the areas of maritime studies and scholarship. Furthermore, the study demonstrates pedagogical techniques employed for achieving positive student learning outcomes, methodologies for integrating information literacy through course-integrated lectures, collaborations with the teaching faculty in enhancing the design and development of the maritime curriculum, and implementation of assessment tools to measure student learning outcomes in response to maritime program review and accreditation requirements. In addition, the study demonstrates the expansion of the information literacy instructional program during the two-month semester at sea.
