Eastern University Testimonies from faculty and students:
I came to you about a month ago for help with my research paper on the origins of yoga for College Writing. I had started my research but I was not sure that I was finding reliable sources and was worried that I would do very poorly on the paper. We only met for a little while but you already had good sources ready for me. You were so helpful and I ended up getting and A on the research paper! I know that without that meeting I would not have done so well. Thank you for all of your help and I will definitely recommend having this kind of meeting to other people.

According to ACRL's New Framework for Information Literacy, "information literacy is considered to extend the arc of learning throughout a student's academic career and as converging with other academic and social learning goals."
Information Literacy is defined as a set of integrated abilities encompassing the reflective discovery of the information, the understanding of how information is produced and valued, and the use of information in creating new knowledge and participating ethically in communities of learning.

How can I schedule a Research Instruction Class (Information Literacy) ?
Contact Joy Dlugosz via email. Include the course title and section, when you are teaching and a couple dates that you would have available. If possible please include the course syllabus. We find it beneficial to examine the syllabus and to earmark research assignments. Many times faculty have us come at the time a research assignment is beginning.
