Instructional Support

Librarians partner with instructors to design assignments using library resources, to teach library resources, and to create bibliographies and learning tools related to information literacy. Topics cover library research strategies, critical thinking and information literacy skills, and scholarly communication.  Contact your subject librarian or archivist to:

  • Re-imagine your research paper assignment
  • Develop customized library instruction or workshops for your class
  • Create Subject and Course Guides
  • Create or use our instructional videos
  • Integrate primary source literacy, visual literacy, or information literacy concepts into assignment
  • Use archival collections to teach primary source literacy
  • Find and use library media and other resources in your class

Also, find out more about how we support teaching and learning at a distance.

Don't forget!  We can also help make your course materials as affordable as possible!

The goal of our library instruction program is to help students become information literate.  The Association of College and Research Libraries' Framework for Information Literacy defines information literacy as "the set of integrated abilities encompassing the reflective discovery of information, the understanding of how information is produced and valued, and the use of information in creating new knowledge and participating ethically in communities of learning."  Visit our Framework web page for more information about the learning goals we share.
