Information Literacy Class Visit Request

Enhance your students' paper-writing skills and guide them towards more scholarly resources with the valuable assistance of the library. Our Information Literacy Sessions are designed to acquaint your students with the extensive array of resources accessible through the Masland Library, empowering them for academic success. When arranging an IL Session, keep in mind the following pointers:

  •  Align the session with an upcoming assignment, strategically timing it either when you initially introduce the project or approximately one month prior to the assignment's deadline. This ensures that the library's support coincides with the students' specific needs.
  • Plan to schedule the session 1-2 weeks ahead of your preferred date to grant the library ample time to effectively prepare for your students' visit. This preparation guarantees a tailored and enriching experience for your students during the session; however, we will work with last minute requests to accomodate unforseen academic requirements.

By incorporating these considerations into your scheduling process, you can optimize the benefits your students reap from the Information Literacy Session. Your collaboration with the library will undoubtedly foster improved research and writing capabilities among your students.
