Information Literacy

Information Literacy
is the ability to  
find,
use,
evaluate,
and
articulate
information.


These skills are essential in order to achieve success in college and life.

Library / Research Instruction

Location:

We are available to teach information literacy in your assigned classroom or with prior notification we can reserve the Bibliographic Instruction room in the library where your class can meet and the instruction can take place. This is particularly useful for classes that would benefit from a tour of the library or classes where the instructor would like to give the students time after the instruction to work and research in the library.

Time:

We can teach during part or all of your regular class meeting time or during another time barring scheduling conflicts.

Content:

The topics covered in information literacy instruction can be customized to your student's needs:

  • Basic library instruction (e.i. searching for books and journals, navigating the library's website, searching databases, LibGuides, etc.)
  • Focus on researching (e.i. evaluating resources, advanced searching, citation tools such as RefWorks, etc.)
  • Assignment or topic specific instruction (e.i. searching subject-specific databases, inter-library loan, finding resources based on assignment requirements, etc.)

Of course, we can instruct on any combination of these topics and expand upon them.
