Faculty Resources: Library Instruction

Library Instruction

Miami University librarians provide in-class instruction, workshops and individual consultations in information-seeking skills and in the use of library resources.

Librarians can also assist with planning assignments, prepare library resources for Canvas, create online Course Guides, and serve as research liaisons for the students in a course throughout the semester. Library sessions can be held in library instruction space or in your classroom.

To arrange for a library instruction session, please fill out the Library Instruction Request Form.

Or if you prefer, please contact the Subject Specialist Librarian in your area of study.

Information Literacy

Information literacy is the set of integrated abilities encompassing the reflective discovery of information, the understanding of how information is produced and valued, and the use of information in creating new knowledge and participating ethically in communities of learning.

Miami Libraries Information Literacy Outcomes are based on The Association for College and Research Libraries (ACRL) Framework for Information Literacy.

The Libraries uses the Framework for Information Literacy in Higher Education as a pedagogical foundation to collaborate with academic departments and other campus units in the teaching of information literacy research skills. The six frames serve as the foundation for the University Libraries information literacy program, they are in no particular order and do not suggest a linear progression.
