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.

Library Workshops for English 111

Library Workshops for English 111 will run from September 8 to December 3, 2015, during Club Hours (3:00 – 4:00 pm). These workshops are in lieu of individual instruction sessions for English 111 classes (with exceptions made for those held in the evenings and weekends).  An assessment quiz is given and printed at the end of the workshop, which can be provided to faculty as confirmation of attendance and can count as extra credit or a small quiz.

The workshops are also appropriate for other introductory level and immersion courses such as CLIP and PASS.

For further information on library workshops for English 111, contact Prof. Mark Aaron Polger at 718.982.4065 or
