Fresh Start! becomes 21CIF.Com

Equals =

What's New?

The 21st Century Information Fluency Project has a new home!

Careful searchers know that the URL contains important evaluation information. So what does our switch from to mean?

21cif is no longer published by the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy where it was conceived and developed. With the generous help of IMSA, the authors of the project have acquired all of the project's intellectual property rights. We are now independent publishers operating as a private company. We remain dedicated to keeping our Information Fluency research alive and thriving!

The old rule of thumb that says ".com is bad" has been irrelevant for a long time. In our case, the change from .edu to .com means our materials remain fresh and under continual revision.

All of the 21cif resources remain free
. The funds needed to support our research will come from tuition or licenses for customized training, facilitated courses, and similar products.

Automatic Re-Direction of links. Our materials can still be found via URLs. However, traffic is automatically re-directed to our new URL at This means older links will lead directly to our new URL at This will make it easier for you to update your links to our project. We are following Google's recommended procedure for maintaining our search index reputation. Our goal is to avoid broken links and create a smooth transition for all of our visitors.

What's Ahead?

  • New Ideas
  • New Games
  • New Presentations
  • New Workshops
