The RAILS project is intended to help librarians create and use rubrics for information literacy assessment. To this end, RAILS serves as clearinghouse for information literacy rubrics.
Standardized Assessment of Information Literacy (Project SAILS): From the SAILS site: Project SAILS helps faculty and academic librarians better understand the information literacy skills of their students.
