The mission of the Library Instruction Program is to support CSI’s General Education curriculum goal of information literacy and provide students with the skills necessary for college and graduate level discipline-specific research. Library faculty seek to encourage the habits of critical inquiry and lifelong learning which are key elements of participation in a global information society.

Writing for Research at CSI

For faculty teaching English 151 courses, please note that as a result of new collaboration with the English Department, we have created an assignment linked below for students to perform prior to coming in for Library Instruction.  Please have your students complete page one of the assignment, and we will complete the additional pages during the Library Instruction session.  The Librarian will provide copies of pages 2-4 in the classroom.
