Library Instruction Mission Statement

The University of New Orleans Library Instruction Program is designed to provide students with the information literacy skills necessary to achieve academic success.  Information literacy enhances the pursuit of knowledge by teaching students to think critically about information and information resources. The information literate individual can recognize the need for information, locate information using a variety of media and technologies and can evaluate and use it effectively.  Information literate students have the ability to transfer these skills across academic disciplines and utilize them in their personal, work and academic lives.
