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 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 Libraries work with other areas on campus to offer workshops on a variety of subjects relevant to students, faculty, and staff.
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 FULFILL THE REQUIREMENT.
The Advanced Information Literate badge is designed to build upon a student’s search skills and expertise in the information literacy concepts that underpin scholarship at a Tier 1 Research Institute.
