The Trocaire College Libraries offer instructors the opportunity to have a librarian come to their classroom to teach their students library skills and information literacy.

Each session is tailored to your coursework to utilize the skills and competencies your students will need to complete their research assignments and projects effectively.

Popular topics for instruction:

  • Avoiding plagiarism
  • Citations and formatting
  • Evaluating information critically
  • Identifying primary and secondary resources
  • Identifying scholarly vs. popular resources
  • Library resource demonstration (databases, eBooks, library catalog)
  • Media bias and literacy
  • Netiquette
  • Topic selection

We usually cover 2-3 topics per 50 minute session. You may wish to schedule a longer session, or add a follow-up LRI session, if you feel your students need more instruction.

Your subject librarian can collaborate with you on developing or redefining a research paper or project.
