Learning Programs and Initiatives
What we do
We lead the library’s activities related to information literacy and scholarly research instruction, including critical thinking, source discovery and evaluation, and academic integrity. Services include instruction and course services, engaged learning programs, video streaming services, and library credit courses. We also provide services tailored for international and transfer students, and outreach to campus student organizations and university learning communities.
We can help you find library resources, connect with experts across the library, or design a class that incorporates information literacy skills through assignment design, scaffolded instruction, and student engagement. We are committed to designing inclusive and accessible learning experiences for all users to facilitate the discovery and use of information resources and expertise.
What we're working on
- We continue to evolve our digital instruction modules on various information literacy topics. We can partner with you to develop a module or import them into your course site.
- We provide engaged learning opportunities for students through several programs including Peer Information Consulting, Student Engagement Program, and the Michigan Library Scholars.
- We coordinate library workshops on research, technology, and publishing topics that are open to everyone in the U-M campus community.
