About Library Instruction:
Librarians can work with faculty to organize library instruction for individual courses in various formats. Information literacy (IL) is at the centre of what VIU Library does in the University. IL is one of the pillars in VIU’s Graduate Attributes, and there it refers to “the ability to find and critically evaluate relevant information and its sources, and to synthesize the information with existing knowledge.” IL intersects with, relates to, and relies on many Library activities.
