21st century engineers need skills not just to develop technologies but also to assess broad implications of those technologies. We present a faculty-librarian collaborative project designed to enable students to acquire both technical knowledge and information literacy skills to assess needs, research and evaluate emerging technologies, identify social, economical, and environmental issues, synthesize findings, and make sound decisions in a global economy.
