Library Instruction

WSU Librarians have designed library instruction to support and develop information literacy, working with students in different disciplines and at different levels of experience. Our instruction mission is to provide library users with the skills to discover, access, evaluate, use, and enjoy information sources as students and beyond. At WSU, information literacy is integrated into the Seven UCORE Learning Goals.

Library instruction sessions are specifically tailored to a class’s assigned research. As such, it is recommended that faculty schedule the session at least 7 days in advance. Further, it is expected that faculty will attend with their students. The faculty member’s presence emphasizes the importance of research and ensures that the instruction meets the needs of the class.
