The Research and Instruction Department supports the University Libraries by promoting resources and services that help produce informed researchers. We work with faculty and staff to improve teaching and learning through information literacy instruction designed for students at all levels on the Oxford and regional campuses.
We offer research support on all library collections, technology support, STUDIOone guidance, and assistance in searching and evaluating websites. These services are provided both in the library and remotely through telephone, email, or IM chat. Librarians also teach instruction sessions, give tours, and offer a number of workshops.
