Purpose of the Information Literacy LibGuide

Information Literacy is not about whether you can use a computer or read a book. It is about your ability to find, evaluate, and effectively use information.  These skills are necessary for student success, and the basis for life-long learning.

This guide has been developed as an information literacy resource for faculty and students. As such, it provides internet links, course related handouts, videos and library/ research ‘how to’s’.

If you would like assistance in developing course-integrated or course related instruction, please email


Information Literacy Instruction

Faculty members are welcome to request specialized instruction relevant to course content and research assignments. Advance notice of 1 week is appreciated.

Classroom sessions can be a general introduction to our resources, or cover specific topics, such as how to use course-related databases, how to evaluate web content, how to begin research in the library, etc.

Classes are usually delivered in a classroom or lab selected by the instructor requesting the session, and we request that faculty be present during the class.

For classroom visits please fill out the online form.
