What We Do
The University Libraries partner with faculty, instructors, and staff to foster information literacy among UNC students. We take pride in offering students a collaborative classroom environment that maximizes hands-on learning and encourages critical thinking.
Librarians create engaging course-embedded library instruction, both in-person and through Zoom. We provide online learning objects, such as guides and tutorials, to address a variety of learning needs. We also offer several credit-bearing information literacy courses. Library instruction is mapped to defined student learning outcomes, assessed, and measured against pre-determined benchmarks for continuous improvement.
What is Information Literacy?
Information Literacy is the set of integrated abilities encompassing the reflective discovery of information, the understanding of how information is produced and valued, and the use of information in creating new knowledge and participating ethically in communities of learning (ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education).
