The information literacy instruction program encompasses a variety of teaching and learning activities offered by the University Library. We support information literacy in a variety of ways including instructional support, individualized research consultations, drop-in sessions, tours, library materials, etc.
Why Include Library Instruction in Your Class?
The Health Sciences Library offers a range of instruction sessions for students. Sample topics include:
How to do a literature search
Forming a research question
Searching for journal articles in databases (e.g., CINAHL, Medline, Pubmed)
Searching for grey literature
Using citation management programs (Endnote, etc)
These sessions can assist students by:
Helping them develop well-thought out research questions
Ensuring that high-quality sources are being used for research papers and presentations
Making sure that they are properly citing the material they use
Demonstrating that there is someone to go to for questions
