More than half of the student body at Carlow receives information literacy instruction taught by librarians on an annual basis through the SKW and SKC courses. Students are instructed in how to search for and evaluate information found in Grace Library and online.
Additional, assignment specific, information literacy classes for your students can be arranged by contacting Andrea Leyko by email or calling 412-578-6142. These classes will be geared specifically to help your students with a particular research assignment.
The library now offers LibGuides, or library research guides, that are created by librarians to help you with research and library services. Some examples of available guides include Shakespeare, Rapid ILL, RN to BSN, counseling psychology, and BSM 202: Business Communication. Do you have a specific course or topic you'd like to be covered as a LibGuide? Let us know your suggestion and librarians will work hard to accommodate your needs.
The library maintains a close working relationship with the faculty through the library liaison system. Each academic department has a faculty library liaison to coordinate the ordering of library materials. Types of materials include print books, eBooks, DVDs, and streaming videos. The Grace Library holdings closely reflect the curriculum and are built through the joint effort of the faculty and librarian liaisons. Comments and recommendations are always welcome from any interested faculty member.
