Instruction in the use of the library is a very important facet of our support for the academic programs. A working knowledge of the library and the literature of the field are important components in each student's education. Many students do not know how to use the library efficiently and effectively.
Faculty can request instruction in general information literacy skills (e.g., skills involved in finding, retrieving, analyzing, and using information) as well as on specific information resources for their classes. Your subject librarian will work with you to tailor sessions and materials that focus on the needs of your particular course or assignment. These sessions may include hands-on practice with electronic resources in your discipline, an overview of reference materials in your subject area, search strategy formulation, advanced search techniques or learning how to evaluate the quality of resources.
Librarians can work with instructors to develop web-based course guides (Libguides) to support course activities.
