Instruction, Workshops, and Learning Activities

Course-related Information Literacy Instruction

We are committed to the safety and support of our students, colleagues, and community. We look forward to collaborating with you to identify flexible and safe options for integrating information literacy instruction into your courses, including: synchronous (librarian-led Zoom workshops), asynchronous (web-based learning objects, video tutorials, and LibGuides), and embedded librarian options. Please continue to collaborate with your librarian to identify the best options and strategies for you and your students.

Schedule a live or synchronous instruction session, at your campus or online, with a library instructor to help your students learn the research and information literacy skills they need to succeed academically.

Please book two weeks in advance to allow our team adequate time to prepare a class that best suits your students’ needs. Also make sure that your students know their research topics and are actively working on their assignment.

Request your session through our Library Instruction Request Form.

For asynchronous instruction, see our E-learning Resources and Course Materials information (text link to new page, noted below)

Undergraduate Research Workshops

These workshops are designed to teach undergraduate students foundational research skills (including but not limited to starting a literature review, joining the scholarly conversation, data management, citation management tools, and creating a research poster). We collaborate with our colleagues in Research Informatics and Publishing along with the Office for Undergraduate Research & Fellowships Mentoring to offer these workshops each semester and during the summer. If you'd like to offer one of these workshops beyond our normal schedule, please email Hailley Fargo, Student Engagement Coordinator, hmf14@psu.edu.
