What We Do
We prepare students to be critical information consumers and creators. As a result of our instruction, students will be able to:
- Evaluate information and information sources.
- Develop a search strategy.
- Recognize information sources relevant to context or discipline.
- Identify authoritative information.
- Recognize that scholarship is an exchange amongst peers.
By using student-centered approaches in course-integrated instruction sessions, we expose students to and cultivate research behaviors for application in the academic, professional, and personal settings.

How to Request Instruction
Complete the brief request form. Once your request is submitted, our scheduler will confirm the date, time, and location. After your instruction session is confirmed, a member of the teaching team will contact you to discuss how to meet the learning outcomes of your assignment and how to align our instruction with the learning objectives in your course.
Classroom Learning Spaces
Instruction typically takes place in our classrooms in the library. The classrooms feature high-definition projectors and flexible furniture conducive to active learning. These rooms are dedicated for library instruction facilitated by the Auraria Library teaching team. Unfortunately, due to the high demand for information literacy instruction, our classrooms are unavailable for reservation by anyone other than our teaching team.
