Teaching students how to effectively and critically use information resources.

The library's Research and Information Literacy Instruction Program is structured to promote the cultivation of information literacy, starting with foundational skills in the freshman year and progressing toward advanced discipline-specific skills in the senior year. These skills help students produce higher-quality research papers and presentations, while preparing them for future success in graduate study or their chosen profession.

Information Literacy Instruction

Library instruction is available in a variety of forms, including:

  • traditional instruction sessions in the library classroom,
  • short drop-in presentations,
  • hands-on workshops,
  • one-on-one appointments, and
  • research guides and tutorials on the library website.

Our librarians can collaborate with faculty to custom-tailor library instruction to meet the needs of their classes. Contact your department's subject librarian to discuss how we can be of assistance.
