Faculty Request for Information Literacy Session
Guidelines for Requesting Library Instruction
The greatest emphasis of library service is providing teaching faculty and students with resources which facilitate learning. Teaching faculty members are expected to integrate information literacy into their curricular programs. Librarians and library assistants work cooperatively with faculty to develop library assignments and resources which improve student learning and contribute to information literacy. Librarians also collaborate with faculty to define student outcomes and assessment methods related to information literacy.
RCC librarians collaborate with faculty in developing collections and instruction which enhance learning and information literacy. Librarians will work with faculty to design library assignments and provide traditional or asynchronous information literacy to contribute to student success. Librarians will also collaborate with faculty to develop assessment procedures to gauge information literacy efforts and learning outcomes related to information literacy.
- Library instruction sessions should be targeted to a specific course assignment or skill.
- The Library Instruction Request must be submitted at least two weeks prior to the preferred date of the instruction session. This gives the librarian enough time to design a lesson plan to collect any supporting materials.
- The Library Instruction Request should be accompanied by the assignment and preferably the class syllabus.
- Faculty should attend the instruction session with their students to help enhance the student learning experience.
