Why should I schedule a library instruction session for my class?
Knowing how to access, evaluate, and utilize information efficiently and effectively is an increasingly important skill in today's world. Information literacy instruction is about introducing students to these skills and making sure they are incorporated not only into their class work, but in their lives as well.
What do I need to do to prepare my class for instruction?
- Have a specific assignment.
- Talk with your students about the importance of research as part of the learning process and stress that the instruction is integrated, not separate, from class content.
- Assign points for information literacy and library-related activities to motivate students.
Does my class have to meet in the library for instruction?
No. We can schedule your session in the library's instruction studio, a computer lab, or your classroom as needed.
Do I need to be present during the instruction?
Instructors are required to attend instructional sessions because their presence and participation helps convey the importance of the session.
