Instruction and Curricular Integration

Library Instruction Request Form

KU Libraries empowers communities of learners to connect with, navigate through, and question an ever-expanding knowledge-intensive landscape to become critical thinkers and engaged citizens. We work with faculty to help students understand that:

  • Authority is constructed and contextual
  • Information creation is a process
  • Information has scholarly, social, cultural, political, and ethical value
  • Research is a process of exploration and inquiry
  • Scholarship is a conversation

For more information, please see the Association of College and Research Libraries' Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education (2015).

To request a consultation or library instruction assistance, please submit a Library Instruction Request Form before the start of the semester, or at least two weeks prior to your desired instruction time.
