Faculty Resources: Library Instruction

About the Instruction Program

The mission of the Richard E. Bjork Library’s Instruction Program is to support faculty efforts in helping their students achieve information literacy. Stockton University's Essential Learning Outcomes (ELO) define information literacy as including students’ abilities to recognize what information they need, identify how to locate, analyze and evaluate it, and demonstrate how to synthesize the information in a legal and ethical manner

The goals of the Instruction Program are to

  • Introduce all entering freshman to basic library resources by conducting classes in their freshman seminars.
  • Familiarize students, as they enter their field of study, with the particular resources in their discipline.
  • Help returning graduate students to achieve the necessary skills to effectively do the work required of advanced study.

The Richard E. Bjork Library provides sessions that address the teaching and research needs of each of each University program, enhance information literacy in the student body, and orient users to library resources and how to use them effectively. Faculty are invited to contact the Subject Librarian for your program to discuss scheduling an instruction session for your class.

Subject Librarians work with faculty to tailor sessions to the curricular needs of each course. Typically, the sessions are planned around course assignments and are meant to provide students with practical, hand-on experience with the skills intended for development in each course.For all sessions, please note:

  • Instruction sessions are available for both day and evening classes.
  • Faculty attendance at these sessions is requested and strongly advised. Faculty expertise is invaluable in enhancing the relevance and impact of the class.
