Tomlinson Library Information Literacy Program

Tomlinson Library's instruction librarians encourage faculty collaboration to optimize student progress at baseline, emerging, and capstone levels of learning. Our instruction librarians will discuss your students’ research needs with you and work together to design library instruction sessions that engage your students with library resources in support of your coursework.

Our scaffolded approach provides ongoing, embedded instruction at the various stages of the research process, from students' initial exploration of a topic, to discovery of relevant information, evaluation of authors and resources, analysis and formation of conclusions, and integration and presentation of new knowledge. Library instruction can be scheduled at any or all of these points of need. 

Library Instruction Student Learning Outcomes  are driven by the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL)  Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education and aligned with the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U)  Information Literacy VALUE Rubric and the  Colorado Mesa University Critical Thinking Rubric.
