We are all being profoundly impacted by the shift to online education and developing economic upheaval. The University Libraries are committed to meeting the information and research needs of our campus community while helping them persist and succeed academically. The more we can use existing or free resources the more students we can serve.

Library faculty teach credit courses, drop-in workshops, and course-integrated information literacy sessions.
Course-integrated information literacy instruction sessions can be designed to meet the library research requirements of a particular course or to assist with a special library assignment. Librarians are also available to consult with the course instructor in the preparation of course-specific library assignments.
Please check out our Critical Information Studies Program page for more details.
