Library Instruction Sessions

Scribner Librarians offer a variety of library instruction sessions at the request of teaching faculty. These sessions may be general library orientations or discipline specific research classes. These sessions are typically held in the Library's Bibliographic Instruction Room 118, an electronic classroom located behind the Reference Desk and to the right of of the Reference Collection on the the main floor of the library.

To request an instruction session for your class, contact your Subject Librarian or submit our Request Form.

Scribner Librarians work with Skidmore faculty to integrate classes on the use of the library and information resources into the curriculum. We help students become information literate and lifelong learners.

An information literate person is one who:

  • Recognizes the need for information
  • Identifies potential sources of information
  • Develops successful search strategies
  • Accesses sources of information including print, computer-based and other technologies
  • Evaluates information
  • Organizes information for practical application
  • Integrates new information into an existing bodyof knowledge
  • Uses information in critical thinking and problem solving
