The College of Charleston Libraries strive to ensure users have access to regular and timely instruction in the use of our libraries and other learning/information resources. Our multifaceted approach provides scheduled instruction throughout the curriculum as well as instruction at the user’s point of need. Scheduled Instruction is proactive instruction such as information literacy sessions and workshops where Librarians and/or Archivists instruct students, faculty, staff, or affiliates in a scheduled, structured setting often aligned with the College curriculum or specific student learning outcome. Point of Need Instruction is reactive instruction such as questions (<15 minutes) and consultations (> 15 minutes) where students, faculty, staff, or affiliates initiate a request for personalized instruction based on their current need or assignment.
The program, guided by the Library Instruction Advisory Committee, adheres to the American Library Associations’ (ALA) Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) standards and framework for information literacy in higher education. Assessment results from the various facets inform program changes and are available in the CofC Libraries Instruction Assessment Research Guide.
