Information about Library Instruction

Librarians offer instruction for classes on Library resources and services. Students will use critical thinking skills to find and filter information as well as make them more information literate.

Library Instruction will be geared towards the needs of your students and course. Classes may be general, focus on specific disciplines, or relate to a particular assignment. Classes are usually a mix of lecture and hands-on activities. 

For more information, call the Library Assistance Desk at (405) 682-1611 x7251 or contact your Library liaison. 

**Instruction sessions must be made one week in advance.**

Information Literacy

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 needed information." Information literacy also is increasingly important in the contemporary environment of rapid technological change and proliferating information resources. (Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education).

Here at OCCC, librarians strive to help students become more information literate by teaching them how to locate, evaluate, and effectively use information. This is done by one-on-one sessions with students, instruction sessions, and by research and class guides.
