Library Instruction Services

The goal of library instruction is to promote information literacy. While learning to identify appropriate information sources is important, being able to critically evaluate sources is necessary for survival in today's information age.

In order to help users fully utilize and evaluate information sources, Axe Reference librarians provide instruction to classes as well as individuals. Services also include designing exercises and/or guides to resources and search strategy.
