Library Research & Information Literacy Skills

Information literacy, or 'the ability to "recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information." This is a set of skills that the library and faculty can help students acquire, through online tutorials, in-class instruction.  If you are a faculty member and would like assistance in teaching these skills, please visit our  Information Literacy Skills page.
