This is the Information Literacy Guide for Kutztown Univ. of PA

Requesting IL Instruction

To request information literacy instruction, faculty members should go to our IL Request Page

What can librarians do for classroom faculty? 

  • Give overviews of available resources (physical and digital) to classroom faculty or provide overviews via department meetings. This can be very helpful to new or seasoned faculty due to changes that occur in library resources on a regular basis. Every academic department on campus has an assigned librarian through our Liaison Program

  • Give library tours to classroom faculty 

  • Collaborate in planning, instruction, and research 

  • Design and teach information literacy to students—variety of options (how to search EBSCO, how to find materials in the online catalog, or specifically designed to meet assignments) Refer to the activity suggestion on the course pages or contact your librarian liaison

  • Provide IL resources for classroom faculty to use outside of direct librarian-led instruction

What can librarians do for students: 

  • Information literacy instruction in or out of a classroom setting 

  • Research Help with a librarian

    • Basic questions - asked in-person or virtually

    • Consultations / in-depth questions - asked in-person or virtually - can be scheduled ahead of time

    • Self-help questions - answered through resources/videos on our Research & Composition Guide

  • Library tours (general building or specific areas)
