Mission: ISU librarians and the Library's Instruction Services staff teach information literacy concepts and research skills that enable researchers at all levels to identify, access and use high-quality information. The Library's instruction services advance the land-grant mission of the University and support the teaching and learning needs of ISU faculty, staff, and students.
We pursue these activities in support of our mission:
- Teach an effective and successful information literacy foundations course for undergraduate students.
- Create disciplinary research guides that support the information seeking needs of students, faculty and staff.
- Create course-specific online guides to introduce students to discipline-based research databases, information literacy concepts and skills, print resources and authoritative websites.
- Collaborate with ISU faculty and instructors to teach in-class course-related instruction session
- Strengthen the Library’s outreach to distance and online learners.
- Teach workshops on various research topics and resources of critical interest to ISU graduate students, post-docs, faculty, and staff.
- Coordinate orientation programs and tours for users groups including new first-year students, new international students, and others.
