SU Libraries’ Information Literacy Program is designed to assist all Syracuse University students in developing the skills to think critically with and about information. SU Libraries' staff are available to provide instruction either in-person or virtually, on library resources and services, online research databases, the research process, and subject-specific collections and research skills. Depending upon your course goals, you can have this instruction take place via one or more of these modalities:
- Synchronous In-Person Instruction: Libraries staff are available to meet with your students during your class time either in a teaching space in Libraries, or in your classroom. To schedule a synchronous session, use the Instruction Request Form.
- Synchronous Online Instruction: Libraries staff are available to meet with your students during your class time via Zoom or Blackboard Collaborate Ultra. To schedule a synchronous session, use the Instruction Request Form.
- Asynchronous Online Instruction: Libraries staff have created a variety of online tutorials and learning objects that can be added to your course. Faculty and course instructors may also consult with librarians to design instruction sessions and/or materials that best support course goals. Contact the appropriate subject librarians to discuss your needs.
- General Library Research Workshops: Syracuse University Libraries offers a series of workshops throughout the year for students, faculty and staff. If desired, faculty and course instructors can assign attendance at one or more workshops as an extra-credit activity. See the schedule of workshop events on the Libraries' News and Events page.
