Educational Services

Librarians from the University at Buffalo (UB) Libraries are active participants in building the information literacy competencies of students at the undergraduate, graduate, and professional levels. UB librarians work with faculty and teaching assistants to introduce research resources, consult on research projects, provide information literacy instruction, and integrate library resources into programs, courses, and curricula.

  • Library Courses

    Credit courses designed to introduce students to the University at Buffalo Libraries, to research resources available through the Libraries, and to the research resources appropriate for specific disciplines.

  • Workshops

    The Libraries work with other areas on campus to offer workshops on a variety of subjects relevant to students, faculty, and staff.

  • Classrooms

  • Instruction Requests

    Library instruction sessions are designed to introduce students to information sources and effective strategies for conducting library research related to a specific subject or assignment. These in-class labs offer students the chance to work on their research with assistance from a librarian.

  • High School Student Visits

    The Architecture & Planning Library, Lockwood Memorial Library, and Silverman Library invite area high school teachers and librarians to investigate possibilities for student instruction and research in any of these libraries to enhance students' skills and understanding of library research.

  • Library Skills Workbook

    The Workbook is designed to help UB students develop their library research skills. It is a General Education requirement for all UB undergraduate students, including transfer students. Students are encouraged to complete it during their first year of study at UB.
