Instructional Services

Librarians teach students the research skills they need to succeed at DePaul and beyond.

We collaborate with faculty to design:  
  • Research Instruction –  face-to-face or online instruction customized for your students, assignment, and course
  • Research Assignments – effective assignments that incorporate research skills and resources
  • Guides and Tutorials –  research and course guides and tutorials that can be linked from D2L
Why Instruction?

Tutorials and Teaching Materials
Library instruction and research help services support several learning goals and outcomes. Students attending instruction sessions or workshops, and engaging with our services will be able to:

  1. Explain the socio-political landscape of information, including who creates it, who controls it and where to find it.

  2. Articulate the value of information inquiry.

  3. Develop effective search strategies for finding information.

  4. Evaluate the appropriateness of information sources based on their format, structure, and purpose.

  5. Compile information ethically, following the standards of a scholarly discipline.

See our Assessment Reports for more information on how we are meeting these learning outcomes.
