Library Instruction

The primary mission of the Library is to teach and advance critical thinking and research skills in partnership with the Kent State University (KSU) and Stark State College (SSC) communities. Contributing to the academic success of students and their preparation for lifelong learning is central to this mission. Our goal is to develop, support, and increase information literacy competencies among KSU's and SSC's diverse student body, faculty, and staff.  The librarians strive to create a learning environment which encourages student academic success and which prepares them for lifelong learning in our information rich society. This web page is an overview of how the library provides instruction. Faculty may be particularly interested in reviewing it, as a way to help integrate library instruction into their teaching efforts. Also, the library publishes Libguides as tools for helping students, faculty and staff understand the resources and services offered by the Library.
