Request An Information Literacy Session

Faculty Librarians are currently online and available to assist you! Please note: Information Literacy Sessions will only take place virtually until further notice.

Request an Information Literacy Session

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.

Types of Library Instruction Sessions

Each hands-on library instruction session is facilitated by a Faculty Librarian and is designed to engage students in learning research strategies, identifying and locating sources of information, and evaluating and citing sources.

Librarians can provide:

  • a tour of the library,
  • a general overview of library services and resources,
  • assignment-specific sessions and special topic workshops aimed at teaching specific skills, such as evaluating websites or creating MLA style citations,
  • multi-session visits where instructors can schedule several classes throughout the course
Sessions are typically 45 minutes long, but multi-class visits throughout the semester requiring extended Faculty-Librarian collaboration are also encouraged.
