This Guide is intended for faculty who would like to know more about library instruction and Information Literacy at UST. We encourage all of you to consider collaborating with your Subject Liaison Librarian(s) on integrating Information and Research Literacy into your courses.
UST's library instruction program supports the curriculum and helps develop creative and critical thinkers. By collaborating with Subject Librarians on designing assignments and incorporating information literacy and research competencies into courses, we encourage students to become independent thinkers who are capable of analyzing, evaluating and creating information with expertise and flexibility that leads to life-long learning.
Library Instruction sessions are designed to teach students increasingly sophisticated research strategies throughout their academic pursuits. We aim to produce graduates who are adept at articulating their information needs, finding the resources to meet them, and using information and data ethically in creating new knowledge.
This GUIDE also provides information regarding the ACRL's Information Literacy Framework for Higher Education. We invite all faculty to consider ways to involve us in your courses. You might also find this shorter version Information Literacy Program helpful.
