Information Literacy Program

Information Literacy Program

The library offers a dynamic Information Literacy Instruction Program to help students manage their information needs. The instruction is provided using a combination of online and live sessions provided by the librarians. Through this program students learn to access, search, evaluate, and properly cite information for assignments and projects involving research, using a variety of information formats, both traditional and online. Students taking English 110, 111, 112, 113, or 120 automatically receive information literacy instruction. Instruction is available in other courses at the request of faculty. Students are encouraged to seek assistance from library staff at any time with their information needs. Below are links to handouts and online instruction resources.
