Information Literacy and Library Instruction

Library Instruction & Information Literacy

Library instruction at Messiah College falls under the umbrella category of Information Literacy. For a definition of information literacy and a list of Messiah College's goals in this area click here.

First Year Students

Library instruction is provided to all first year students as part of their First Year Seminar course. Each seminar is assigned a librarian who, with the instructor, plans library-related assignments and hands-on instruction. For a list of information literacy objectives for first-year seminars click here.

Upper Level Instruction

Each librarian serves as a liaison to several academic departments. In this role, in collaboration with faculty members, librarians teach students how to conduct library research in their majors. Faculty members are encouraged to contact their department's liaison librarian to schedule library instruction sessions.
