Library Instruction

Library Instruction

We support the instructional program of the University through information literacy training and by acquiring, organizing, and providing access to appropriate information resources. Library staff works in conjunction with faculty to prepare students to effectively and responsibly locate, evaluate, and use information across the curriculum and in lifelong learning.


  • Librarians help your students find research materials for your assignment and will tailor lesson plans to individual class needs
  • Professors are required to attend sessions along with their students 
  • Library Instruction Sessions focus on:
    • Course specific needs
    • Information literary
    • Using library resources

How to make the most of your Library Instruction Session:

  • Assignments:
    • Students should have an assignment requiring information resource use prior to the library instruction session in order for them to receive the full benefit of the session
    • Professors should share syllabi and assignments with the librarian
  • Timing:
    • It may be helpful to schedule a library session two weeks to 10 days before a specific assignment is due
