Library Orientation & Information Literacy Instruction

Dacus Library's Orientation Program acquaints users with the physical layout of the library and introduces them to the services, resources, and people who can help them meet their information needs. Dacus Library faculty also create and lead lessons centering the use of broad or subject-specific resources for undergraduate and graduate courses.
