We offer library usage sessions, instructor-led workshops, customized classes for UM and other groups, distance learning services, online tutorials, private consulting services for individuals, and other resources for instructors and learners.

Information Literacy and Research Skills Instruction

We, the faculty and staff of the University of Mississippi Libraries, believe that information literacy education is essential to academic success of our students. In the current digital information age, being information literate has become a necessity in all areas of life.  

We regularly collaborate with faculty, instructional staff, and campus groups such as The  Center for Writing and Rhetoric, The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning,  Ole Miss Online, Outreach and Continuing Education and the FedEx Student-Athlete Academic Support Center, to design and deliver instruction that will ensure that all students have the opportunity develop the information literacy skill set they need they need to become efficient and effective users and producers of information. 

Please explore this site to learn more about information literacy and how you can collaborate with the Libraries to improve the research and information literacy skills of your students. If you are a student and you would like to learn more about information literacy, the research processes or how you personally can become more information literate, please contact us.
