Hanley Library Information Literacy

Goal III of the ULS Long Range Plan (2007-2010) entitled "Assistance and Education" mandates that we "assist our primary users in making the most effective use of information resources, regardless of format." To this end the Bradford Campus Library staff is committed to developing an information literacy program and collaborating with teaching faculty to teach each Bradford student to be a knowledgeable and effective user of information resources. Bradford faculty and students are encouraged to consult the ULS Information Literacy and Assessment of Learning Program website to learn more about this program.

The purpose of library instruction is to support the teaching, research and public service programs of the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, by offering instruction in the access, evaluation and responsible use of information found both in and out of the traditional library setting.

UPB faculty may schedule a library instruction session during regular class meeting times. Library and classroom faculty work cooperatively to develop instruction that enables the students to effectively use library and other information resources for their course assignments.
