Information literacy is essential to becoming an informed citizen, critical thinker, and lifelong learner. The librarians in the Research & Learning Department of Chambers Library provide instruction and consultation services to ensure that students:
Critically analyze the relevance, accuracy, quality, timeliness, authority, and context of information
Develop effective and efficient strategies for finding credible information
Identify and select sources that are appropriate for an information need
Follow a reasonable timeline to conduct information research, assimilate and synthesize ideas, and create an academic work representative of their research
Employ the principles of academic honesty by acknowledging the works of others through accurate citations and references
Librarians are expert researchers and we are glad to help!
