Information Literacy and Research Skills for Students

The Library is your partner in teaching, learning and research.

We offer course-related and course-integrated instruction to McMaster faculty and students on how to find, evaluate and use information effectively and ethically.

We can:

  • Provide advice on creating effective library and information research assignments.
  • Teach your students and TAs how to search for information effectively.
  • Create a course guide to help your students navigate through the Library's resources for a specific class or assignment.
  • Educate students about plagiarism and the ethical use of information.
  • Teach students how to correctly cite sources in their papers and bibliographies.
