Students in all disciplines need to be able to efficiently and ethically access, evaluate, use, and create information. Landman Library’s information literacy instruction program works to help students develop their skills in these areas, so that they can be active and responsible participants in the global information landscape.
Studies have shown that students learn information literacy skills best when they are integrated into the curriculum and into individual course syllabi. Librarians have thus made it their mission to support student learning by partneringwith faculty to identify desired student outcomes, conduct instruction, and design assignments.
