This page provides information about librarian and Libraries support, as well as additional resources, for individuals in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience who teach. 

Support and Resources for Teaching

The Association of College and Research Libraries, in the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education, defines Information Literacy as “the set of integrated abilities encompassing the reflective discovery of information, the understanding of how information is produced and valued, and the use of information in creating new knowledge and participating ethically in communities of learning”.

Learn about the Libraries' commitment to information literacy, including the following:

Course-Integrated Research Services

Faculty and instructors may reach out to Merinda to collaboratively design and arrange learning opportunities in support of course goals.

Tailored Research Seminars

Faculty and instructors may use our online form, or reach out to Merinda, to request tailored research sessions, which are designed to meet specific student and course needs. The sessions may help students investigate and focus on research topics; explore the complexities of the research processes; examine information and communication systems; interrogate information genres and formats; and participate and contribute to scholarly and civic conversations.

Online Course Materials

Faculty and instructors may request customized online learning resources. Guides and learning objects help to scaffold research assignments, compile relevant and useful sources and facilitate integration of library resources into online learning spaces. Please reach out to Merinda to learn more.

Assignment Consultations

Faculty and instructors may work collaboratively with teaching librarians to design or revise assignments or assignment sequences to incorporate information literacy. We work together to articulate student learning goals and design learning activities. Please reach out to Merinda to learn more.

Research consultations

Faculty, instructors, and students may request individual coaching and learning. Please schedule an appointment with Merinda online or reach out to her by phone/email.
