The focus of our library instruction program is on helping students acquire the skills to search for, evaluate, and use information effectively and efficiently. The Library offers hands-on instruction sessions on library research, tailored to courses, assignments, and students' research topics. Instruction sessions will use the full class time.
We use active learning in our instruction to engage students and improve learning. Library instruction is available for both traditional face-to-face classes and online classes. Traditional classes meet in our Library classroom NLIB 124 and online classes receive instruction via CANVAS embedded tool - Collaborate.
We ask that you give us sufficient time to prepare for your classes with a minimum of one week's notice for classes in the Fall and Spring semesters and 3 days notice in Summer.
If you wonder why we stress the importance of information literacy for our students, here are a few research articles that speak to that reason.
