The Instruction Program of the ULM Library seeks to develop the information and computer literacy skills of students, faculty and staff at the University of Louisiana at Monroe. To this end, the University Library’s Instruction Program teaches users to independently seek, locate, retrieve, evaluate and use information effectively and ethically for problem-solving.
The Instruction Program is developed in response to identified learning needs and through collaboration with teaching faculty and staff. The Program provides individual and group instruction, course-specific, web-based and open workshop methods.
The Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education from the Association of College and Research Libraries provide the framework for program development and instructional objectives. The Instruction Program of the ULM Library supports the missions of the University of Louisiana at Monroe, the University Library, and the Louisiana Board of Regents Statewide General Education Requirements.
Your subject librarian, or liaison, has expertise in the resources of your discipline and is able to tailor instruction to fit specific course needs. You can direct any question you might have about the ULM Library or library research to your subject liaison. Contact a reference/subject librarian to discuss your course instruction needs. See the list below for liaisons and contact information. Please remember: it takes time to prepare for these courses, particularly in the case of tailoring assignments or classes. Please contact your librarian at least a week ahead of the day on which you desire instruction.
