Welcome to Library Essentials, a collection of workshops for English 100 sections (including 100A, 190, and ESL100) that introduce students to basic library services and resources, print and digital. The workshops are designed to help English instructors address the Written Communication (FW) “information literacy” requirement of their courses. The Library Essentials workshops are scheduled during regular class time and meet in Hamilton Library classrooms to provide students hands-on instruction on computer workstations. The 2017-2018 Library Essentials Program includes a menu of three workshops. Instructors can register their course for any combination of workshops (one, two, or all three).
