Information Literacy Instruction for students of URI 101: Traditions and Transformations
Goals of the Library instruction session
- Introduce students to the Library as place (for group work, study, research and information seeking).
- Introduce the array of services the Library provides that support student research and learning.
- Students will identify primary service areas of the library in order to become familiar with the building.
- Students will discuss resources available at the Libraries that support college-level research.
- Students will use the Library catalog in order to find books.
- Students will explore features of the Library's web site in order to locate services and materials for college-level research.
Instruction/How We'll Help the Students Achieve the Outcomes
These four outcomes are supported by a two-part package consisting of 1) a
guide created for students, available at
http://uri.libguides.com/start, and 2) the Library Experience session facilitated by librarians during the studentsí visits to the library with their URI 101 class.
The guide serves as an introduction to the
library, and Library Experience session addresses and reinforces the outcomes by addressing available services and resources.
The web page listed below provides online help covering the topics presented in the URI 101 Library Experience session.
For help using URI Library resources, please
check additional user guides listed on the
Library User Guides page.
