Librarians offer instruction sessions designed specifically to meet the needs of your classes. The goal of library instruction is to teach students how to navigate the library, assist students with the research process using both online and print sources, develop critical thinking skills in selecting and evaluating information, and emphasize the value of information through academic integrity and the ethical use of information through use of citations and other best practices.
