Academic libraries add value to the teaching and learning missions of their universities through information literacy instruction. This guide describes the UAA/APU Consortium Library's Information Literacy Instruction Program.
The Consortium Library’s Information Literacy Instruction Program contributes to the Library’s mission by providing expert instruction on finding, evaluating, and using information effectively and efficiently. Faculty librarians use a variety of instructional methods to empower people to meet their academic, personal, and professional information needs. The Library’s instruction program is more vital than ever in a rapidly changing and overwhelming information environment.
The instruction program touches on the UAA mission and all five University of Alaska Anchorage core themes: teaching and learning; research, scholarship, and creative activity; student success; UAA community; and public square. In addition, the program supports fulfillment of UAA’s General Education Requirement Student Learning Outcomes seven and nine, which directly relate to information literacy.
The Library’s Information Literacy Instruction Program serves UAA and APU undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, staff, administrators, and community members.
