This guide details how the library's instruction program addresses the learning outcomes of the ACRL Frameworks for Information Literacy.

Integrating Information Literacy into Assignments


  • Consult a librarian to share your learning objectives, to ensure that the resources are available for your assignment, and to arrange for instruction.
  • Librarians can come to your class, maintain a presence in your eLearn and/or meet individually with students.
  • In addition to instruction, librarians are available to consult on assignment design.
  • Collaborating with librarians can help you determine the best ways to meet your curricular needs.


  • Instruction is most effective when it is delivered at the point of need, rather than at the beginning of the semester before the students are engaged in the assignment.
  • Librarians are happy to provide as many sessions as you would like to meet your needs. 
  • Librarians can also collaborate with you to identify the resources available to promote students' skill development.
  • If you share your assignment ahead of time, the librarian can plan the best mode of instruction to meet your learning outcomes.


  • When students receive the assignment, make sure they are aware of your expectations regarding interacting with librarians or the staff of the Center for Writing and Academic Achievement.
  • During instruction, librarians also emphasize the various ways to contact the reference team.
  • Based on your assignment, librarians deliver assignment and discipline specific instruction mapped to specific learning outcomes.


  • Librarians are also available to consult on assessment tools and options.
  • Feedback from faculty on the instruction we provide enables us to create enhanced resources and services.  
  • After the assignment has been assessed, let the librarian know what worked well and where the instruction could be improved.
