Library Instruction

To help students and faculty take advantage of the rich research collections available through the Library, the Olin & Uris Research & Learning Services department offers a variety of programs. We offer sessions for course-related library instruction for First Year Writing through graduate-level courses, workshops, library tours, and orientation sessions.

These programs, guest lectures, workshops, and instructional sessions are guided by the Olin & Uris Research & Learning Services Learning Outcomes:

    • Students will be able to identify and compare different information resource types, and their uses in a variety of research contexts.
    • Students will develop a process for recognizing misinformation and irrelevant resources as they relate to their particular research interests and contexts.
    • Students will be able to describe the information pipeline and analyze how it is affected by external systems and networks.
    • Students will gain a broad understanding of the scholarly landscape including what peer review is, different kinds of publications, and an introduction to copyright.
    • Students will be able to use and create citations as well as comprehend how citations relate to topics such as knowledge justice, information scarcity, and scholarly impact.
    • Students will describe how different systems describe, organize, and disseminate information and apply this knowledge to finding and selecting their sources.
    • Students will discuss and provide critical analysis about how digital platforms, tools, resources, infrastructure, and practices influence information access and usage.
