The library provides an array of credit and noncredit instruction to enable student mastery of critical information seeking skills within and across disciplinary frameworks and resource formats. Students’ mastery of these skills and abilities can be measured through the library’s Information Literacy Learning Outcomes, which are applied to both credit and noncredit instruction in the library. Noncredit instruction can encompass reference, consultation, bibliographic instruction, online tutorials, orientation and instructional materials. Credit instruction, which includes a variety of courses, teaches information-seeking skills, research strategies, critical analysis and evaluation of information, and an understanding of the importance of information in our society.
