Instruction/Information Literacy

Given the complexity and wide range of resources in today’s academic libraries, the new emphasis on computerized retrieval of information, and renewed concerns for strengthening research and writing in the curriculum, the Library has taken steps to strengthen its instructional programs and invites the cooperation of faculty in fostering information literacy within the University.

Scarborough Library’s faculty librarians teach information and research skills and advocate integration of this instruction with the university curriculum. To this end, classroom faculty are strongly urged not only to discuss research assignments with librarians, but also to arrange for special sessions of library instruction when these may be appropriate. To arrange for instruction, please contact the your School’s Library Liaison.

If you have any questions about room reservations for Scarborough Library Room 307, please contact Theresa Smith by phone at 304-876-5217 or email.
