Information Literacy Instruction

iMac Computers in the UNM-Taos Library Library Rescource Center

A lifelong learner can always find the information needed for any task or decision at hand. 

It is the goal of the UNM-Taos Library to help our students become life-long learners. Information Literacy forms the basis for life-long learning. "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 information need.'"

Scheduling Library Instruction

Computer Lab, Research Database and Library Instruction are for individual instruction as well as for whole classes. Faculty may schedule classes for library instruction throughout the semester. It is best to schedule sessions at least one week in advance. We recommend that faculty consider scheduling individual instruction for themselves, as well. Please click below and use the form to make a Reservation.
