About the EWU Libraries’ Instruction Program
Our Mission is to teach students, university faculty and staff to locate, evaluate, and use information resources and services effectively, in accordance with four foundational documents:
Our Instructional Philosophy is to provide information literacy-focused instructional programming in order to fulfill our mission, while addressing the three EWU core themes of access, learning, and completion. Librarians create instructional programming tailored to the needs of EWU’s diverse student population. Course-integrated instruction is designed to critically engage students with the resources needed for their coursework, as well as support their growth as information literate citizens. Student learning outcomes focus on developing core research skills to promote the lifelong pursuit of higher-level information inquiry and knowledge acquisition. Wherever possible, instructional activities are constructed to promote active student engagement and experiential learning.
