Library faculty are committed to providing quality, up-to-date information literacy instruction. We provide hands-on introductions to research strategies and tools including how to use library services, the library catalog, reference works, databases, and search engines. Some instructors prefer a walking tour, while others prefer a specific focus. We always tailor instruction to your needs. Our library classroom (C204) is equipped with a teaching workstation and 24 student computers. Librarians can also make presentations in classrooms around campus and co-teach with you online via Canvas.

Research assignments can be designed to encourage students to actively seek information, retrieve it successfully, assess it critically, and apply it in thought-provoking ways. If you don't have an assignment, library faculty are happy to work with you to design one. Or, consider the information literacy assignment sites below.
