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.
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.
The Libraries work with other areas on campus to offer workshops on a variety of subjects relevant to students, faculty, and staff.
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.
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.
This is a General Education requirement for undergraduate students who enrolled at UB prior to Fall 2016. If you are a new freshman or transfer student as of Fall 2016, YOU DO NOT NEED TO TAKE THE LIBRARY SKILLS WORKBOOK.
