The Amelia V. Gallucci-Cirio Library offers On-campus, Extended Campus, Distance Learning and Embedded Librarian Instruction Programs to help prepare all of our students to be information literate in the 21st century.
Information Literacy is more than the set of integrated abilities to identify what information is needed, understand how the information is organized, identify the best sources of information for a given need, locate those sources, evaluate the sources critically, and share that information. It is also the understanding of how information is produced and valued, using information to create new knowledge and participating ethically in communities of learning.
As such, our library instruction programs integrate information literacy skills with the core concepts of the Association of College & Research Libraries' (ACRL) Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education:
The On-campus, Extended Campus, and Distance Learning programs provide individualized and tailored library instruction sessions at the request of the faculty member which can be conducted in our Library Instruction Lab or in your own classroom.
The Embedded Librarian Instruction Program provides an extended partnership between the instruction librarian and the faculty member by embedding the librarian into either the online portion of the course and/or the physical classroom to deliver library instruction content, research support, and more to the students for an extended time period (several weeks up to the full semester).
For more information about these library instruction programs refer to Types of Sessions.
