Information Literacy Goals
Building Student Information Literacy Skills - We Can Help!
Students need information literacy and research skills in order to navigate an ever-increasingly complex world of information sources, and your librarians are here to help!
We can help your students develop these skills so that they can better apply them to their coursework. Students can stop by the reference desk at both the LRC (Library) and the Learning Commons locations to get help and build their skills.
We also have developed several handouts that you can use in your classroom to help develop the information literate student. Feel free to use any of the BCTC handouts on this page to aid the development of information literacy in your courses,
In addition, we have created many related Libguides to help lead students towards a more information literate future. Check back here occcasionally for for updated guides or information, and be sure to check out links to more Libguides.
There also is a BCTC Libraries Facebook fan page that has frequent posts related to library resources and information.
