Information Literacy and Library Instruction
In order to be successful, Walsh University students should be able to conduct effective research by learning how to identify, access, retrieve, and evaluate appropriate information for their needs. To help our students succeed in their research, the Br. Edmond Drouin Library librarians are available for library instruction sessions tailored to specific courses, assignments, or curricular themes.
Librarians can provide
- Single or multiple sessions
- "Embedded librarian" support in a course for a limited time or the duration of the semester through ECN
- Customized research guides for your class. When posted in ECN, the guides offer an easy way to ensure students have the resources and research techniques they need.
- Consultations on research assignments, including feedback on information literacy objectives and the availability of appropriate resources
include helping students to
- Analyze a topic and identify the key concepts
- Formulate a successful search strategy
- Select and use appropriate research tools for their particular assignment or discipline
- Critically evaluate sources for relevancy, authority, accuracy, objectivity, content and currency
- Understand the legal and ethical implications of information use
To ensure your students get the instruction they need, when they need it, please contact us as far in advance as possible. Use the form on the right or contact Stephanie Henderson to schedule a session: firstname.lastname@example.org or 330-490-7187
