SU Libraries’ Information Literacy Program is designed to assist all Syracuse University students in developing the skills to think critically with and about information. For the 2021 spring semester, SU Libraries' staff are available to provide the following online instructional services:

  • Synchronous Online Instruction: Libraries staff are available to meet with your students during your class time via Zoom or Blackboard Collaborate Ultra to to provide sessions on library resources and services, online research databases, the research process, and subject-specific collections and research skills. 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 Fall semester for students, faculty, and staff. If desired, faculty and course intructors 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.
