Hanley Library Information Literacy

"Be a catalyst for critical scholarly inquiry, innovation, creation and learning at the University of Pittsburgh" is one of the ULS Strategic Plan (2020-2025) goals. To this end the Bradford Campus faculty are committed to developing a robust information literacy program, in collaboration with other campus faculty, to empower Bradford students as knowledgeable, effective users of information resources.

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 within and outside of the traditional library setting.

Pitt-Bradford 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.
