Curricular offerings include credit-bearing courses on information literacy and special topics. Co-curricular services include tours and orientation sessions as well as opportunities for structured dialogue with faculty, staff, and community members. Curricular-embedded programming provides research and writing assistance for students in courses across disciplines through integrated research and writing workshops. In all its offerings, the Libraries helps students develop intellectual and practical skills for success while at Western and long after they graduate.
