Information Literacy and Research Skills Instruction

Information literacy and research skills instruction can help support your students’ learning and success with research-based assignments in your courses.

Whether students are new to research or already have some experience, they may benefit from working with a librarian to learn to:

  • navigate research resources
  • narrow a topic
  • search more effectively
  • select relevant and authoritative sources
  • organize the research process
  • think critically about the information ecosystem.

Information literacy instruction sessions can take many forms, but are always tailored to your specific research-related assignments or course needs.

We can teach in-person and online synchronous sessions or work with your courses asynchronously through video presentations, digital handouts, online research guides, Canvas modules, and more.

Contact your liaison librarian to discuss your information literacy goals and teaching and learning opportunities.
