Options for Integrating Information Literacy into Courses

Information literacy instruction takes place at the request of faculty, and librarians work closely with faculty to tailor each session to the unique needs of each course.

In addition to face-to-face library instruction, librarians are also available to support student research in other ways, such as:

  • creating a LibGuide for a specific course
  • individual or small group research consultations
  • adding a librarian to your Moodle course page

Please contact a librarian (503-943-7788 or library@up.edu) to discuss options for supporting your course.
