The information environment has become exceedingly complex as information-seekers navigate through a maze of online resources such as web sites and the library's databases. It is the library's responsibility to serve as a bridge between the information source and the information seeker.
With this in mind, information literacy instruction is available upon request. These library instruction sessions are designed to meet the specific needs of faculty and their students. For example, we have conducted library sessions to help students with a specific assignment, or to introduce students to basic search techniques.
Faculty are encouraged to schedule a library instruction session by contacting the Reference Desk at 674-6352 or email email@example.com. We suggest that at least a week's notice is given when scheduling a class so we can better prepare for the session. Click here to submit an online Library Instruction Request Form
