Information Literacy instruction, conducted in the library or in the classroom, helps your students formulate strategies to locate, evaluate, and apply information (L.O. #4). Librarians teach research skills using both online and print resources. Each instruction is tailored to the research needs of the class.
Librarians college-wide are prepared to provide Information Literacy instructions via Blackboard Collaborate. Once the request is received, a librarian will be reaching out to you with a link to a virtual room through Blackboard Collaborate. Students can then join the session at the prearranged date and time.
