The Memorial Library system is dedicated to ensuring our users learn to effectively find and evaluate information in all of its varieties. We teach classes in library and internet research; we create tutorials and guides; and we consult with instructors to create assignments which build information literacy skills. In our ever more complex information environments, these skills are increasingly important for academic and professional success.


Library users need support in undertaking research, and such support is best provided through instruction from professional librarians. Classes are designed to teach the concepts and skills required to effectively use Library and Internet resources.

Consultations and Assignment Ideas

Along with teaching classes, we offer assignment development services to faculty who want to incorporate information literacy or research skills components into their courses.

Tutorials and Guides

Tutorials that help library users learn basic research skills are available, as well as a wide range of short guides covering both general research skills, and specific information tools.
