What Librarians can do for Faculty

 World map of 24 hour relative average utilization of IPv4 addressesThis is the favorite duty of most of our librarians…hey, most nerds like to show off their area of expertise! We are excited to interact with students and can teach them about how to survive in the Information Age. Our students need the skills to navigate our local resources and those available to them on the open web. They also need to know issues surrounding information, including how it is produced and how to determine the credibility of an information source. The world of information is daily growing in complexity and library instruction will help our students to understand this world; to locate, assess, and properly use information. Use the “Library Instruction Request Form” below (the blue one) to initiate contact with your librarian.

If you’re flipping your classroom, you can twist the arm of simply ask your librarian to create a video lecture for your class, so that in-class time can be spent on applying information literacy concepts. See how to link these in CampusConnect using the steps at the bottom of the page. Outside of videos, the Online Librarians consistently plan tech projects that all faculty are encouraged to use.
