Faculty Services: Library Instruction

Who we are and our goals; what we offer to you and your students, and how you can better integrate library services and information literacy into your courses.

Tips for a Better Library Class

1. Schedule early. Pick a time when students have a grasp on their assignments. Put it in your course schedule.

2. Provide a copy of your syllabus and assignment to the librarian prior to the class.

3. Be involved. Use Information Literacy concepts in your class.

4. Be specific. If you expect them to use current scientific research or government statistics, say so.

Non-Paper Research Assignments
