Information Literacy

Our initiatives are always evolving. Currently our information literacy programs include:

  • Working with all students in both ENGL 101 and 102 classes and other courses upon faculty request to orient them to the library’s resources
  • Conducting classroom sessions in which students and librarians actively collaborate to discover sources for their assignments
  • Co-leading APA workshops with the tutoring office
  • Meeting one-on-one with undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students to review APA compliance and reference construction
  • By faculty request, meeting with students in upper level, major-specific classes to provide subject-specific, in-depth instruction and research support

In these sessions and workshops, we work to develop skills which will enable our students to:

  • Discover and critically evaluate relevant information and diverse resources
  • Synthesize information into meaningful results through the successful completion of writing projects, presentations, and other faculty assignments
  • Engage in ethical discussions about intellectual property rights, plagiarism, and proper citation
  • Map how information literacy is intrinsic to successfully completing workplace assignments and to attaining personal goals throughout their lifetime
