In academic spaces and beyond, it is crucial to give students opportunities to explore how and why information is created and the ways in which information can be thoughtfully and ethically used.
The UD Library, Museums and Press offers robust instruction focused on enhancing the curriculum of the University of Delaware and encouraging a critical engagement with all types of information resources.
We support teaching and learning by collaborating with faculty to craft hands-on lessons and by developing semester long partnerships that are connected to course goals. To supplement these collaborations, we design online materials such as guides, tutorials and modules. Our expertise and unique collections enhance student explorations of course content.
We are also available to provide general orientations, tours, workshops and individual consultations.
By understanding how to find, evaluate and interpret information—including multimedia, physical and digital materials, and rare objects—students gain confidence accessing and creating knowledge with a critical mindset.
