Our Library Instruction Room, located on the first floor of the University College Library, is intended to provide Faculty Librarians with a teaching space to offer students, faculty, and staff a hands-on experience on the use of library resources and services, information literacy, and research strategies. To ensure users are informed of the proper use of the instruction space, the library's Information Literacy Program and Room Use Policy is available below.
