Information Literacy Instruction
Research can be an overwhelming and complex process for students. Having a librarian guide students through the process of how to find, evaluate, use, and create new content can have academic and personal benefits.
Librarians at Centralia College can help:
- Understand your students' research capabilities.
- Create, revise, or offer suggestions on your research-based assignments.
- Talk about alternatives to traditional research papers or presentations.
- Identify and discuss library resources suitable for your course.
- Provide individualized training on library resources.
- Develop and teach in-person and online sessions tied to course content.
Scheduling Library Instruction
- Read the best practices for teaching with your librarian.
- Contact your subject librarian directly.
- Remember to schedule at least 7 days in advance of when you would like your library instruction session to occur, and
- Supply a copy of your assignment description(s).
