First Year Seminar Faculty

About This Guide

Welcome to the Online Library Component Faculty Guide

The University Libraries' information literacy instruction program provides a firm foundation in the research process and the acquisition of basic research skills to first-year students. Students learn about information literacy concepts and develop skills from their professors in the classroom, from librarians through instructional support, and from assignments on which classroom and library faculty collaborate. 

This guides provides specific information about how librarians collaborate with First Year Seminar faculty to develop students’ core competencies in information literacy and critical thinking via the Online Library Component, a set of four learning modules that is a component of the First Year Seminar curriculum at AppState. 

If you have questions, would like a consultation regarding the integration of the Online Library Component in your course, or want talk more about how the library can support your students, please get in touch with Mark Coltrain, First Year Experience Librarian.
