Information Literacy Instructional Services

There are multiple ways faculty can integrate information literacy instruction into their courses. The faculty librarians in the Research & Scholarly Services department can develop customized, course-integrated learning experiences for your students, which may take the form of workshops, lectures, presentations, activities, research guides, or a combination of these teaching formats.

Course-Integrated Instruction

  • Faculty can request to schedule information literacy instruction so that the students in your courses will become familiar with the Library’s resources and services.
  • Library faculty will collaborate with you to customize instruction to meet individual course needs, focusing on the relevant resources for your subject area.
  • Your students will be introduced to research methods, search strategies, and approaches to critically evaluating the information they find in order to effectively meet curricular academic research requirements.
  • Special Spring 2022 Notice: We are committed to partnering with you to provide high quality information literacy instructional support to your students. Due to campus health and safety protocols as outlined in the Royals Back Together plan as well as unfilled faculty openings in the Research & Scholarly Services department, we are grateful for your flexibility as we work with you to safely meet the needs of your students this semester.

  • Undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty may email a subject liaison librarian to make an appointment to discuss a research topic, develop a search strategy, or examine resources relevant to a paper or research project.
  • Liaison librarians offer both overview and in-depth assistance with the resources best suited to support your research needs.
  • Find your subject liaison librarian.
