Information Literacy for Faculty at Clermont

Overview of the Clermont College Library's information literacy and instruction program.

Guidelines for Requesting Instruction

Synchronous instruction can take place face-to-face or online through WebEx/Teams. In order to provide a thoughtful, well-constructed instruction session, we ask faculty to use the following guidelines:

  • The teaching faculty member must be present during the library instruction session
  • Instruction sessions should be scheduled by the end of the 2nd week of the semester
  • If you need to reschedule or cancel an instruction session, please inform your library liaison as soon as possible. 

It is strongly encouraged that library instruction sessions be linked with a relevant research assignment. Prior to the session, students should know about the assignment and have chosen topics (if applicable). Plan to share the assignment and topics with the librarian ahead of the session.

Library Liaison

Your library liaison will likely be the librarian participating in instruction. Library liaisons are based on your Clermont College Department:

  • Business, Law, & Technology: Catie Carlson
  • English, Languages, & Fine Arts: Kathy Ladell
  • Math, Computers. Geology & Physics: Kathy Ladell
  • Science & Health: Kathy Ladell
  • Social Sciences: Catie Carlson

Feel free to contact your liaison for more information about information literacy at Clermont College.

Session Learning Outcomes

In addition to the guidelines, we strongly recommend having 1-2 learning outcomes you'd like to see from the library session. You librarian can help craft these once they understand your students' needs.

Example topics for an information literacy session could be that students will be able to:

  • Decode the differences between popular and scholarly
  • Transition from research topic to literature search
  • Generate keywords and keyword synonyms
  • Select appropriate search tools
  • Craft a search strategy
  • Use a variety of source types to support their claims
  • Evaluate information found on the world wide web
