The ASU Library's instruction program strives to help students become proficient in locating appropriate information sources; evaluate them for quality, usefulness, and purpose; and integrate them properly into a research paper or project.

Benefits of library instruction include:

  • Reduces dependence on Google and Wikipedia
  • Helps students feel more comfortable using library resources
  • Reduces library anxiety by simplifying the process of doing library research
  • Introduces students to the relevant resources and services the library provide
  • Demonstrates how to find and use the best research databases
  • Creates a personal connection with their subject librarian

Information research skills

Our goal is for every ASU student to become proficient in our information research skills.
