Faculty may schedule library instruction sessions for their classes. Library Faculty will collaborate with Teaching Faculty to determine what specific information students need to complete research assignments. Explore the common topics listed below.
The instruction sessions, while usually taught in the Libraries' information literacy suite(ILS), may also be scheduled in a departmental mediated classroom. In the ILS, the learning opportunities are "hands-on" sessions that encourage students to learn about and feel comfortable with the Libraries' resources while performing actual tasks. Students are introduced to research strategies, learn how to use the Libraries' resources to enhance results, evaluate the results, and use them ethically.
