Information Literacy Instruction Sessions
The SSU Library provides instruction sessions designed to teach information competencies to students. Sessions are tailored to the needs of each course and students.
The most effective instruction occurs when these sessions are linked to a well-defined assignment and offered at the time when the students are working on that assignment.
Faculty can request formal instructional sessions for their classes from a subject specialist librarian. The library's instructional classrooms may be reserved only by Library Administration or by the librarians who use it for instructional purposes.
To schedule an appointment to discuss a classroom-collaboration with a librarian, please contact the Subject Librarian for your subject area
