Information Literacy sessions focus on developing research plans, utilizing library research tools, and evaluating resources. In a preliminary meeting, our librarians will devise unique instruction based on the needs of the professor and students. Some examples of previous instruction sessions include: introductory research methods, advanced searching tutorials, bibliographic management systems, citation guidance, and more.

Instructional Technology sessions focus on teaching students new software or specific software tools. These sessions are not limited to class wide sessions, faculty are encouraged to meet individually with our staff to learn advanced techniques for utilizing technology in the classroom. In addition, Hackney Library hosts various instructional technology workshops. To find out more about instructional technology at Barton College, visit the Online Learning website.
