INFO-652 Reference and Instruction

3 Credits

Librarians serve individuals and their communities by providing information sources and teaching users to navigate information environments. This course prepares students to work directly with users in a variety of formats, including in one-on-one interactions, in instruction-based interactions, and through information products such as digital tools. This course aims to prepare students for their role of providing communities with equitable information access and promoting justice by applying ALA standards, resisting censorship, rejecting neutrality, demystifying open, identifying place, interrogating the librarian standpoint, and responding to community needs.
