Information Literacy Instruction Requests

Request an instruction session(s) by contacting your Department Liaison Librarian or by submitting the above online form, which gets relayed to the appropriate librarian (for best results, submit the form at least two weeks in advance of the session).

About Information Literacy Instruction: In consultation with course instructors, librarians provide hands-on classroom instruction on strategies and resources designed to improve students' information research skills. Faculty may request one or more instruction sessions tailored to specific course assignments. Sessions may be scheduled in AL 243, the Library classroom, or in other computer labs or classrooms on campus depending on availability.

How can faculty integrate the teaching of information literacy into their programs and courses? Have a conversation with your department's liaison librarian or browse the following Andruss Library links or those from the ACRL to explore ideas.

Contact your library liaison for help or suggestions in designing assignments to develop students' information use skills.
