Online Tools to Increase Digital Literacy for Students

Information literacy and library research skills are critical for university students – especially in an age when so many dubious sources of information are competing for their attention. Ideally, faculty can contact a librarian to set up an instruction session that will be tailored to their class’s needs for these valuable skills. But what about those who teach fully online, or when class time is already limited by a disaster like Hurricane Harvey?

For these circumstances and others, the library has created and gathered a set of online resources that instructors can integrate into their coursework, without the need to meet face-to-face. These resources range in time-intensiveness from short videos to more robust worksheets to intensive, interactive online lessons that students can complete independently. Resources are available on the following topics:

If you are interested in using our interactive online lessons, please contact Ashley Lierman. If you would like to discuss face-to-face library instruction options, however, please contact your liaison librarian or Ariana Santiago.
