The librarians can help!
Today's students and faculty enjoy unprecedented levels of access to information, but it is easy to feel overwhelmed by the number and variety of information resources available. The Davidson College Library's Informaton Literacy Program is designed to help students acquire the skills, competencies, and confidence they need in order to become information literate, life-long learners. To this end, the librarians provide formal and informal opportunities for students to develop their critical thinking skills, acquire expertise in using research tools, and gain proficiency in identifying, locating, and evaluating information. We also offer sessions and research assistance for faculty members too!
