The University Libraries has an Information Literacy Program to assist students in learning how to do college-level research. We tailor sessions to your class assignment and can host sessions in our Information Literacy Classroom - 410 Coleman, or come to your classroom.
Sometimes there isn't enough time to schedule an Information Literacy session. Try our Information Literacy Online Modules. They cover many different topics such as: how to get started, plagiarism, citation management and a host of other information rich topics.
