Library Instruction

The mission of the Marymount University Library Instruction Program is to advance the information literacy of Marymount University students and faculty by addressing both immediate curricular needs and lifelong learning. Through person-to-person, classroom, and online methods, library instruction promotes information literacy and awareness and use of the library and the Washington Research Library Consortium (WRLC) resources. Information literacy is "the ability to identify, locate, evaluate, and use information for a specific purpose." Library instruction is available to current Marymount students, faculty, staff, and administrators.
