    Library instruction

    serves the Moore community by teaching the skills needed to locate, retrieve, and critically evaluate information. Ideally, classes are scheduled when students have assignments and specific topics that require them to use library resources, since library instruction is more meaningful when it is relevant and course-integrated. It is also essential that the instructor be present during the class, particularly to assist in responding to student questions, offer clarification, and focus on the value of resources during the practice time.
