Watzek librarians regularly partner with CAS and graduate school faculty to offer sessions designed to engage students in all levels of discovery and use of information resources. Contact your library liaison to discuss how your students might benefit from information literacy instruction.
CAS students may encounter information literacy concepts and instruction in a variety of places in the curriculum:
First-year seminars are an ideal setting for giving students a chance to develop the library skills and confidence that undergird higher-level bibliographic research. Watzek's personal librarian program is designed to support this more foundational learning.
Graduate students benefit from course-integrated library instruction that takes into account the particular needs of learners who may be returning to school after time away, or may need to rely more heavily on remote resources.
Ask your librarian to book the library classroom (Watzek 245) for your next library instruction session. The room has a number of features that make it appealing for the kind of teaching we typically offer:
If the library classroom is not available, or if you prefer, librarians will also visit your regular classroom. Please contact your library liaison to schedule a session.
