Librarians strive to develop and maintain a relevant, authoritative collection of print and online resources that meets our students' information needs, promotes literacy, and encourages life-long learning.

Request Library Instruction

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.
