Information Literacy: A Tiered Approach

Librarians support the curriculum through instructional services that assist students with their research and provide them with information literacy skills for lifelong learning.  To that end, librarians collaborate with faculty to engage students with inquiry based assignments that foster critical thinking and prepare students to use information wisely and effectively in their academic, professional, and personal lives. Throughout their undergraduate years at Saint Michael's College, students experience multiple opportunities to hone research skills and develop expertise in evaluating, comparing, and selecting reliable and credible sources of information.
