  • Information Literacy Instruction
    The library's information literacy instruction program is designed to introduce students to the resources and research strategies that they will need to succeed in their academic programs and beyond. ILI takes a variety of forms including general introduction to the library and its resources, course-specific instruction, and individualized instruction. Use our online forms to request a class in the library or, if you prefer, in your classroom. Contact Ruth Perkins at 610-683-4608 to learn more.
