Library Instruction

All faculty are able (and encouraged) to invite one of our librarians to give a class on how to critically analyze the resources that are used for research purposes. Information Literacy is a fundamental component in today's digital world, and today's Librarian is able to give detailed strategies to using information ethically and responsibly in ones research.

What is Information Literacy? And why do my students need to know it?

Information Literacy is a specific type of literacy that that is highlighted by the knowledge and skills to think critically about the information that one is using. When thinking about research, it is one of the reasons why peered-review sources are preferred since we *trust* that those resources have been vetted and the information is both authentic and accurate.  Information Literacy also is thinking about where information is coming from and understanding the biases that may be built into the data.
