Creating Research Assignments

Library Instruction

Including library and information literacy instruction in your courses can be helpful to introduce students to specific tools and resources available to them through the library. Beyond the technical skills of database navigation, library and information literacy workshops can help students think about critically reading, evaluating, and integrating sources into research projects. Typically this entails a librarian coming to your class one or more times over the course of the semester, but can also include videos for asynchronous courses or individual research consultations with students. Typically, library and information literacy instruction is most effective in conjunction with a specific research assignment.

If you are interested in discussing how you might integrate library and information literacy into your course, please contact the liaison librarian for your department. The full list of liaison librarians is available here:
