Faculty Toolkit

Resources for faculty on information literacy, library instruction and other library services.

About the Toolkit

The purpose of this toolkit is to provide the LU and LIT faculty with resources about information literacy and how the librarians can assist them.

Our IL program bases its foundation on the Association of College and Research Libraries Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education.

As part of our Instruction Programs we offer:

  • Assistance with the creation of assignments that stress information literacy standards
  • Instruction sessions on library research
  • Embedded librarian in courses to provide research assistance
  • Tutorials and learning modules for students
  • And more, if you have an idea please call us.
