MISSION

The Instructional Services Team at the Pace University Library is here to help members of the Pace community acquire information literacy skills and become critical thinkers who are able to identify, retrieve, and evaluate information for use in academic and creative pursuits as well as for lifelong learning.

How do we accomplish this?

  • Work with faculty to discuss methods of incorporating information literacy and research skills into their courses
  • Design a wide-range of outcomes and instructional experiences based on course disciplines and goals
  • Perform in-class instruction, live or asynchronous, to engage with students and meet learning goals
  • Provide resources such as slideshows, guides, tutorials, and online activities for the development of information literacy, research skills, and critical or creative thinking around information
  • Support the overall learning goals of Pace University

Instruction Options: 

  • Research Instruction Sessions In Person or on Zoom
  • Librarian role in Classes LMS (librarian provides additional support to students via Discussion Board or individual conversations)
  • Asynchronous Material Creation & Assessment
  • Library Orientations, UNV 101 Sessions, and custom workshops
  • One-on-One Consultations (In-person or Online)
  • Research Guide Creation

What Faculty & Students Have to Say About Library Instruction

“Just wanted to thank you again for the super job you did in directing my students on their project. They were really impressed by how much you had researched before you came to the class. Personally, I think the information and direction you provided was amazing. Now I am expecting big things from them! Thanks again!”
