Information Literacy Workshops

Staff Contact: Maureen Lerch

What is information literacy?
Information literacy is the ability to find, evaluate, and effectively use information in all its various formats.  Wayne College has adopted a set of core information literacy outcomes.  By the time a student completes a course of study at Wayne College he or she will be able to:

  • Recognize and articulate an information need;
  • identify and select appropriate information sources;
  • develop and use successful search strategies;
  • locate and retrieve relevant information in a variety of formats;
  • critically evaluate the information retrieved;
  • and use information in an effective and ethical manner.

Information Literacy Modules
The library staff have created a menu of online information literacy modules that highlight the research skills needed to be successful during the first two years of college.  These workshops may be required by individual course instructors.   Students should check their syllabi at the start of the semester to determine which modules are required in each course.

The modules are available as online tutorials in the library's Springboard classroom.  You must be a currently enrolled student at Wayne College to access the library's online classroom.  Contact Maureen if you do not have access to the current semester's library classroom.  Connect to Brightspace.

Course Reserves

Staff Contact: Lisa Nagy

What are course reserves?
Course reserves are supplemental materials that are selected by professors for their students.  Print and media reserve materials are checked out for a limited amount of time to allow as much access to the materials as possible.  Some reserves may be accessible electronically through a professor's Springboard classroom (e-reserves).

  • E-Reserves: Include articles and other digital resources.  These are accessed via a secure website and only enrolled students will have access to these materials.
  • Print / Hard Copy Reserves: Includes books, CDs, DVDs, and other printed materials (like study guides, class notes, sample tests, etc.)  These reserves are located at the library information desk and may be requested by an instructor's name.

Copyright Compliance:

  • All course reserves must be in compliance with the "Fair Use" provisions of the Copyright Law.
  • See the UA Office of General Council's Guidelines for Copyright Compliance for more information.
