Instruction Program Mission

Instruction Program Mission

The Instruction Program at Holman Library supports the mission, vision, and core values of Green River College by enhancing students’ information literacy skills for academic success and for lifelong learning in their personal and professional lives in a diverse, global, and technological society.

Faculty Librarians at Holman Library work to integrate information literacy across the college curriculum. They design, teach, and assess customized information literacy instruction:

  • in all modalities (face-to-face, hybrid, and fully online)
  • synchronously and asynchronously,
  • at the reference desk,
  • in single shot and series information literacy classes in support of subject classes,
  •  in drop-in library workshops, and
  •  in credit-bearing information classes.

Librarians employ the Association of College and Research Libraries Framework for Information Literacy (2016) and the Standards for Information Literacy (2000) to develop students’ understanding of how and why information is produced and distributed, and their skills at effectively and ethically finding, assessing, and using information. 

The ACRL Framework for Information Literacy defines information literacy as “the set of integrated abilities encompassing the reflective discovery of information, the understanding of how information is produced and valued, and the use of information in creating new knowledge and participating ethically in communities of learning.”

Reviewed

The Holman Library Information Literacy Instruction Plan is reviewed and revised annually.

Revised: Winter Quarter 2021
