  • Discern quality and authority in the information sources they choose.
  • Handle information honestly, ethically, and legally.
  • Envision themselves not just as consumers, but as creators of information.
  • Embrace the iterative process of research by formulating, asking, answering, and reformulating research questions.

Research Librarians are available to deliver instruction tailored to your course:

  • In-person instruction in your classroom or one of the library’s instructional spaces.
  • Flipped classroom instruction.
  • Embed your Subject Librarian in your online, hybrid, or in-person courses.
  • Collaborate to design assignments that meet course-related Information Literacy outcomes.

  • Provide assistance in identifying supplemental materials (ebooks, videos, etc.) for your course. 
  • Instructional videos. 
  • Asynchronous online instruction.
