General Policies for Library Instruction

General guidelines for information literacy instruction:

  • Allow at least one week lead time. This allows librarians to prepare for your students, assignments, and learning objectives. 
  • Requesting a session earlier helps you get the time and room you want. We book quickly, especially in weeks 3-6 of the semester.
  • Students get more out of standard library instruction when it's coordinated with an assignment, at a point in the semester when they are starting to research, or has a real world connection 
  • We can create special activities connected to one of the Frames from the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education. 
  • We can get creative with topics about fake news, fact-checking, scholarship as conversation, the nature of authority when it comes to information, information privileges, algorithmic bias, and more. Just ask!
  • Unless it's a special circumstance, professors are expected to attend sessions with their students.  Librarians will not take attendance.
