These workshops develop research and information literacy skills for specific courses or subject areas, and often relate to a specific course assignment. Workshops may include topics such as the following:
- Finding information in library databases
- Search strategies
- Bibliographic management
- Evaluating information
- Using primary source materials in research
- Finding subject-specific information (e.g. patents, images, marketing information, archival material, conference proceedings, etc.)
Information literacy workshops are most effective when designed in dialogue between faculty and librarians around a specific assignment with learning outcomes. Please consult our Best Practices for Faculty and Instructors to learn more about designing an information literacy workshop.
