INSTRUCTION SUPPORT

Open Educational Resources (OER)

Librarians can help faculty find articles and OER Materials that can be hyperlinked in Canvas. OER and Pressbook related questions can be sent directly to Floyd Csir: fcsir@howardcc.edu

Information Literacy

We partner with faculty to empower students to effectively use information in school, at work & in their personal lives. Students will be successful life-long information seekers who identify, access, evaluate & ethically use all types of information.

Online Instruction

Librarians work with faculty members to include information literacy in the online environment - for any class format that needs online information literacy content. Online instruction may be presented in a variety of formats, including tutorials, videos, live online sessions (Zoom, Canvas Conferencing), and more.

Course Guides

Course guides support students by combining library & research resources as well as information literacy content. Course guides may be developed for:

  • a specific course - all sections of a course may have a common information literacy need.
  • a specific section of a course - the section needs specialized resources for a specific assignment.
  • a discipline - all courses in the discipline need a shared set of resources & information literacy skills.
