Explore the toolkit to learn how faculty librarians can work with you to grow students' research skills.

What is Information Literacy?

"Information literacy is the set of integrated abilities encompassing the reflective discovery of information, the understanding of how information is produced and valued, and the use of information in creating new knowledge and participating ethically in communities of learning" (ACRL, 2016).

What Can the Library Faculty Help me With?

The library faculty can work with you to develop a plan for addressing research education in your course. We can work with you to:

  • identify outcomes & suggest appropriate activities.
  • mix & match and sequence existing LibWizard tutorials into a Canvas module.
  • create additional LibWizard tutorials.
  • develop other assignments, activities, discussion posts, etc.
  • create online research guides.
  • scaffold the research process into your course.

How Do I Request Instruction?

Please request instruction using the applicable form.

You can add multiple sections of a course to one form. The forms feed to a central location to assist the library faculty with scheduling. You will receive a confirmation from the librarian assigned to prepare instruction for your class within 2 business days.

My last day of work for Spring 2021 is April 1. Please contact me by email no later than March 30 in order to ensure a reply before I am away. I will return in Fall 2021. I will not be available until my return. Please note that the library faculty have not been on campus since March 2020, so we are not answering the library reference phone number nor our office phones.
