Research Instruction / Information Fluency: Research Instruction

Research Instruction at Furman

Library faculty members would love to partner with you to help your students master literature reviews and other library-based research in the academic environment.  Our goal is to help them move beyond their standard reliance on Google into an advanced level of fluency in the research and discovery process. This includes an understanding of the nuances of databases and resource types as well as an ability to evaluate and select the most relevant, reliable information sources for both their coursework as well as life and informed citizenship beyond commencement.


We do not offer "library tours" or general orientation sessions.  Instead, our research instruction is course-integrated and assignment-specific.  In addition to research instruction sessions for students, we are happy to assist you with designing effective research assignments. We also love meeting with individual students or small groups from your class to discuss their research.
