Information Literacy Sessions
With the vast array of growing information each year, it has become vital that students develop comprehensive information literacy skills in order to become lifelong learners. This is where librarians can aid you in educating Alvernia's students.
Contact one of the Reference and Instruction Librarians to schedule a class. Recorded sessions can also be arranged for asynchronous classes.
Books, articles, & DVDs can be placed on reserve for student use in the library. Faculty should complete a Reserve Materials Form for each item.
Create a list of electronic reserve items for students within your Blackboard course page.
