Information Literacy Session

Tours and instructional sessions

The Olin Library offers tours and instructional sessions designed to teach information literacy and research skills. Library tours provide a general knowledge of the location of library resource collections, public use computers, rooms, media, equipment, and available services.

Working with departmental faculty, library faculty offer instructional sessions to all students, to provide a set of research skills and philosophies that will help students effectively use library resources to complete assignments and educational goals.

Contact your Department Liaison (see Librarian Liaisons) to setup a Library Information Literacy Session.
