Instruction


Requesting Library Instruction

The libraries teach students the information literacy competencies needed for success in academics.  Information literacy instruction teaches students the research process, source evaluation, and proper use of information.  A typical session provides an overview of the library and introduces the online catalog of print books, e-books, articles, academic journals, streaming media, and film resources. Information literacy sessions also include active learning and student participation.  Librarians are able to help create custom information literacy lessons.  Don’t have time for a library visit?
