Information Literacy Instruction

Expert faculty librarians can help you and your students with your information research skills and questions. Librarians provide tailored information literacy instruction related to specific courses and assignments; it is best practice for subject faculty to collaborate with librarians in developing course-related assignments designed to develop students research skills. Information literacy sessions may be scheduled in AL 243, the Library classroom, or in other classrooms on campus depending on availability.*

Request an instruction session(s) by directly contacting your department liaison librarian or by completing the Request for Library Instruction form. Groups not assigned a librarian liaison may also use the form or contact Michael Coffta, Coordinator of Library Instruction, 570-389-4124.

Please allow a two week lead time for scheduling and preparation. Please note that there is a growing number of tutorials available on our Web page

To learn more how the Library can work with you in the development of your students' information fluency, visit our Information Literacy page.
