Collaborate with a Librarian

What is the value of library instruction?

  • Creates an opportunity to integrate information with the course content so that information tasks are woven throughout the duration of the course;
  • Promotes life-long information literacy in each individual student;
  • Acquaints students in each discipline with the unique body of information within their field;
  • Provides thorough, point-of-use instruction for students as they begin an assignment;
  • Provides students with an active classroom experience in the library, emphasizing hands-on activities;
  • Creates ladder learning for students in which library instructional approaches are used in increasingly sophisticated ways as the student continues through the college curriculum, especially within a discipline.
