Salisbury University should be aware of the wide variety of
print and electronic information resources available to them
and should be able to conduct effective library research
by learning how to identify, access, retrieve and evaluate
appropriate information for their needs (information literacy).
To achieve this,
librarians are readily available to teach library instruction sessions
tailored toward a curricular or research need.
instruction at Salisbury University may take
any number of forms:
class session (one or more 50 or 75 minute class periods)
class session combined with one of the following:
assignment or activity
● a small
● an individual
Library instruction is available on a first-come,
first-served basis to all Salisbury University classes
at the request of the course instructor
(please allow a two-week lead time).
Sessions may be scheduled in several library spaces or
may be conducted in locations outside the library, such as
regular course classroom or other campus buildings.
instructors are encouraged to attend library class sessions with
their students. Student learning
and motivation are enhanced when their instructor is present
during a library class session.

What is the connection?
The Blackwell Library instruction program has two major goals:
● To support classroom instruction by teaching students to find and use
● To foster lifelong learning in students by teaching information literacy
The Connection is YOU!
Library instruction is most effective when classroom faculty and faculty librarians work together. Contact the Library Instruction Coordinator or your librarian liaison to schedule your class today!
