Library Instruction & Workshops

Library Instruction and Information Literacy

Librarians are available to teach classes on topics related to library research and to LATTC’s academic and CTE curriculum.  Class topics may include a general orientation to the Library,  how to find books and articles, how to find and identify authoritative public web pages, scholarly vs. popular sources, research strategies, citation styles and more.  Our librarians can also team with faculty to design class presentations specific to their classes and students’ research topics. The librarians follow the Standards of Information Literacy established by the Association of College and Research Libraries, Instruction Section.  As such Information Literacy is the set of skills needed to find, retrieve, analyze, and use information.”

  • To schedule a library instruction session for a class, contact a librarian at the reference desk (ex.3958)
