Information Literacy at the Resource Centre

Information Literacy has been defined as the ability to locate, evaluate, manage, and use information from a range of sources, print and electronic, for problem solving, decision making and research.*

Our instructional programs include in-class discipline-specific seminars tailored to the needs of a course as well as hands on workshops with an emphasis on a variety of tools and information competencies.

Other instructional services and initiatives include:

  • Development of online resources and learning tools such as subject related web pages (created with LibGuides)
  • Collaboration with partners on campus such as Teaching and Learning Support Services to integrate information literacy in the students learning experience.
  • Collaboration with Faculty to develop course-specific library resources such as:
    • Library Course Pages (using LibGuides) that organize resources to meet the needs of a specific course.
    • Assignments and exercises to develop specific library research skills.
