A librarian can provide instruction to your students in courses at all levels. We're dedicated to helping students become critical and engaged users and creators of information, whether it's through the library, online, or out in the world.
Students' information needs are constantly growing along with their knowledge, so the library instruction program does not stop at the first year level. If your course involves any sort of research, we highly recommend integrating an information literacy instruction session into your class.

After the session, it is extraordinarily helpful to provide feedback about what worked or what could be improved for next time. We are working on some feedback forms for faculty and students to help us assess our Information Literacy instruction program.
