General Information

The Library Instruction Program is designed to provide library instruction (formal and informal) based upon the needs of students, faculty, and staff. It is presented through lectures and demonstrations to respond to the total education process of the academic community. The Library Instruction Program is an ongoing entity assuring each student at the university exposure to basic and varied library experiences and information resources. The program is designed to introduce students to library research methods and concepts so they can function effectively in modern libraries and information centers, using multi-formatted information sources - print, microforms, databases, and online services. Focus is placed on instructional methods that will help users learn, select, and evaluate library materials appropriate to their needs. It is designed to motivate users to consistently use the library and its resources.

Library Instruction is presented on three levels:

  •      Level I - Orientation to library collections, facilities, and services (Freshman)
  •      Level II - Special materials in subject areas (Sophomore-Senior)
  •      Level III - Professional and research sources (Graduate-Doctoral)
