Request Library Instruction

Email to talk to a librarian about instruction opportunities.


Sul Ross Librarians are here to help students, staff, and faculty at all campuses discover resources, accesses services, and build skills. All of these actions culminate in information literacy.

We support and promote research assignments that…

  • grade students on how they conduct research alongside any final products
  • encourage students to peer-review each other’s research processes
  • demonstrate the research process in a specific field of study for students to gain real-world research experience
  • provide clear and consistent instructions (working toward a common vocabulary) for how to conduct and report on research

  • collaboratively developed assignments
  • embedded librarianship in Blackboard courses
  • virtual reference service
  • research consultations
  • customized/updated research guides

The SRSU Library is currently involved in building out the Library Teaching and Learning Toolkit as part of the librarian-created Research Guides. The toolkit and associated links below are resources intended to help faculty teach or plan assignments with library learning outcomes in mind.

What is Information Literacy?

Information literacy is a set of abilities requiring individuals to “recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information.” (American Library Association. Presidential Committee on Information Literacy. To be information literate, then, one needs skills not only in research but in critical thinking (American Library Association).
