Information literacy skills taught in instruction sessions address the critical thinking competencies in HCC's Essential Competencies. Working with a librarian reduces research anxiety and improves the quality of student research and papers. Students learn more in instruction sessions when the class is taught at "point of need." Plan a library visit after your students have reviewed their assignment and chosen topics. The librarians also have support options for online classes.
At the end of instruction sessions, students will:
- Refine a research topic
- Understand the difference between scholarly and popular sources
- Identify relevant search terms
- Conduct efficient searches in online databases and the I-Share catalog
- Evaluate the credibility of sources
- Create citations using the library’s citation generator NoodleTools
- Understand how to avoid plagiarism
