The library mission includes helping to develop critical thinkers and to create lifelong learners. The need for information literacy skills has never been greater, and student success depends on having the skills to navigate a rapidly changing information landscape. The Reference staff provides Information literacy instructional sessions for class groups in all disciplines and subject areas, and at both undergraduate and graduate levels.
Upon the request of the faculty member, librarians will meet with classes in the library, in campus classrooms or via Zoom. Andy Kulp, x5444 and Kathy Evans handle information literacy instruction at Smith Library , while Meghan Davitt, x4351, provides instructional services in the Health Sciences Information Center. As an aid to Information Literacy Instruction, the Reference staff has developed a series of subject guides for a number of professors and their individual courses. Each guide is designed to identify Library resources supporting the objectives of the course. For more information, contact Andy Kulp at Smith Library, x5444.
