Purpose of this guide:

Teaching and Learning librarians have moved away from providing in-person library sessions for UNIV 112 to providing extensive online resources for UNIV 112. Yes, we still have Designated Librarians for all UNIV 111, 112, and 200 classes! Although we offer in-person library sessions for UNIV 200 classes only, we are happy to work with faculty teaching 111 and 112 in a "train the trainer" capacity: we can help you with assignment creation, suggest the best tools and activities for your students, and provide research consultations for your students.

This guide will provide many activities, lesson plans, videos, PowerPoints, and other resources Focused Inquiry faculty will need to teach information fluency skills to their UNIV 112 classes. Some of the tools on this guide are designed so that you can make a copy of them and adapt them to suit your needs. If you need help or suggestions, please contact your Designated Librarian.

If you have any general questions or concerns about this guide or how librarians can help your students, please contact Jenny Stout at or your Designated Librarian.

Please watch this short video that gives an overview of the Guide:
