Mission of Library Instruction

Goals of Library Instruction

  • To build strong collaborative relationships with faculty, staff, and students
  • To provide information literacy instruction to allow for access
  • To establish a system of assessment of student learning outcomes for all library instruction
  • To periodically evaluate the library instruction program and make revisions as necessary
