University Librarians can meet with your class in the library, the classroom, face-to-face or online. We teach students information literacy concepts and skills needed to locate, evaluate, and use relevant, credible resources. Whether it is books, databases, datasets or special collections, we have you covered. We can also help you find physical or online resources to use in your classes and place them in course reserves for convenient access for your students.
