The Lawrence W. Tyree Library has identified information literacy competencies and corresponding skills, which are based on the Association of American Colleges & Universities' Information Literacy VALUE Rubric. These skills are taught by the following methods:
formal library instruction developed for SF courses
paper and online tutorials
point-of-use instruction by reference librarians
credit courses covering the use of electronic resources and the internet as research tools
Librarians will work with you to develop a customized session designed to support your assignments and learning objectives. If your course includes research, we highly recommend that you work with a librarian to develop a library instruction session or library materials for your Canvas course.
