  Scheduling L&LS Self-Guided Tour
In an increasingly information-rich, complex research world, students need to learn strategies and skills to identify and use appropriate resources. Library faculty offer a variety of classes and workshops by appointment to help students:
Information Literacy banner: get the power
  • Develop information literacy skills.
    Library & Learning Services defines Information Literacy as"The ability to identify, locate, evaluate, and use information for a specific purpose."
  • Identify resources for current course assignments. 
  • Use major research tools (both print and electronic) by subject area. 
  • Access resources, such as those on the World Wide Web, which are not based in the library. 
Classes are available to current Marymount students, faculty members, administrators, and staff.
