Instruction

Instruction Overview

Whether your library calls it instruction, BI, information literacy training, one-shots, library orientation, or user education, this is where you can look for resources created by and for your CARLI colleagues. Handouts from forums, best practices, documentation, and webinar recordings applicable to matters of Library Instruction may be found here.

ACRL Framework Toolkit

This Toolkit maps those instructional activities taught at the CARLI Instruction Showcase to the Framework, with the hopes that instruction librarians can use these presentations as resources for creating and/or re-imagining their own library instruction to accord with the Frames.
