Information Literacy Workshops Policy
Information and Instructional Handouts
In an effort to support independent learning, the Library has provided handouts that address questions about the Library, its guidelines, and Information Literacy. These handouts are available free of charge and can be found at the revolving display unit by the Lending Services Desk. Instructional Support Handouts are also available in conjunction with Library workshops.
Information Literacy Workshop Program
The BHCC Library’s Information Literacy Instruction Program contributes to learner success in the classroom and in an increasingly technology-oriented workplace. Information literacy instruction sessions are tailored to the needs of specific course assignments, highlighting the most helpful materials available. The bulk of the library’s work in Information Literacy outreach is accomplished through the workshop program, which serves 4,500 to 5,000 students per calendar year. The library encourages faculty to schedule information literacy workshops for their classes.
We solicit and encourage faculty feedback regarding students’ application of information literacy skills. This data is used in assessment of the library’s information literacy workshop program. Standard and customized course related workshops emphasizing the goals and objectives of information literacy found online at https://libguides.bhcc.mass.edu/faculty_toolkit are designed in collaboration with faculty and students as needed in support of student academic success.
