Due to COVID-19, all library instruction will occur virtually until further notice. Please contact your subject specialist, or complete the instruction request form for more information.
The Information Literacy Team works with you to promote and support literacy across the curriculum by helping you build library research into classroom assignments or by collaborating with you in any of the following ways:
Information Literacy Instruction Sessions (To schedule a research instruction session, please see the calendar for availability and contact your subject specialist.)
Skills and concepts that can be covered include:
- Information retrieval (using tools such as the Library catalog and/or article databases)
- Effective web searching techniques
- Evaluating resources
- Copyright, plagiarism and citing sources
- Concept mapping
- Effective searching using Google and Google Scholar
If you are interested in library and information literacy skills being more embedded in your course, please contact the Information Literacy Librarian or your Subject Specialist
Librarians create guides to highlight discipline-specific databases, e-journals, and Internet resources, and serve as a starting point for student research assignments. Contact us to find out how Course Guides can fit your students' research needs.
- Sessions should be requested 5 days in advance (2 weeks for courses new to IL instruction) to allow library faculty time to prepare.
- You must receive confirmation before bringing your classes to the Library to participate in a session.
- Faculty must attend sessions with their students.
