Faculty Resources: Library Instruction

Information, forms, and library resources for PAC faculty.

Library Information Literacy Modules-Faculty Info

Faculty: There are six information literacy modules available in the Library Information Literacy Modules Guide. Each tab contains module. The modules contain tutorials, videos, and a quiz.  At this time, a  module completion certificate is not available for proof of module completion.  A certificate is currently in development by our vendor.  Instructors will be notified as soon as a completion certificate becomes available so that students may provide instructors with proof of module completion.  In the interim, quiz scores will be emailed to the instructors weekly (Fridays) via a secure file share server as proof of module completion.  Instructions for accessing the file sharing are available below.

Library Instruction Form

Library Instruction Form

The librarians provide sessions on how to use the library. The sessions may include instruction on how to identify, access, evaluate and use information resources. Library instruction must be requested two weeks before the requested date. We recommend placing your request(s) at the beginning of the semester to better ensure availability.

We suggest that

  • the classroom instructor be with the students at the library session
  • students have already been assigned the research that the library faculty will be addressing
  • the classroom instructor provide the librarian with a copy of the assignment.
