Research & Learning


Introduction

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!
