Research instruction

 

Librarians from Research and Instructional Support (RIS) support student research skill development and information literacy. They collaborate with faculty on assignment design, teach course workshops customized to specific research assignments, and are available to students for individual research consultations. 

Common information literacy instruction topics include:

  • developing effective research strategies and skills
  • locating and identifying scholarly materials for a particular assignment
  • identifying and working with primary sources
  • critically evaluating information sources in the context of the scholarly communication cycle
