Library Instruction (Information Literacy)

What is Library Instruction?
Students at Salisbury University should be aware of the wide variety of print and electronic information resources available to them and should be able to conduct effective library research by learning how to identify, access, retrieve and evaluate appropriate information for their needs (information literacy).
To achieve this, 
librarians are readily available to teach library instruction sessions tailored toward a curricular or research need.  


For Faculty:

Library instruction at Salisbury University may take any number of forms:
individual class session (one or more 50 or 75 minute class periods)
        an individual class session combined with one of the following:
             resource-specific orientation
             class assignment
             library-related assignment or activity
        collaborative course teaching
        a small group session
        an individual student session

Research Clinics

The librarians offer research clinics twice a year (April and November). These are workshops on various topics for small groups or they could be individual sessions. Although we promote Research Clinics for particular time of the year, if you need help, please contact us anytime. Your librarian liaison will be glad to help you with your research needs.

Here's the current offerings for Research Clinics
