Students who know their way around the physical library and the library's rich array of electronic resources are better students! Librarians help students learn to navigate library resources and by teaching information literacy skills.
Library instruction sessions focus on developing information literacy skills and navigating resources for research-based assignments. Library instruction is most meaningful when connected with course content and assignments. Your librarian will collaborate with you to talk about how to tailor the information literacy session(s) and assessments so that they fit the needs of your specific class.
