For Rhetoric Instructors

Collaborate with a Librarian

What do picking a research topic, formatting a bibliography, evaluating resources, and understanding algorithmic bias in Google search results have in common? They are all aspects of information literacy. Working with a librarian can help you integrate information literacy concepts throughout an assignment or throughout your course. 

Request a Collaboration

Librarians are available to consult with you on a variety of topics to support your teaching, and to support your own research needs and interests.

We can help with: 

  • information literacy instruction - both inside and outside the classroom
  • assignment design - to creatively problem-solve with you on how to address information challenges faced by your students
  • recommended resources to complement your assignment - often taking the shape of an online guide that can be integrated into your course's web presence

Please be in touch to request a collaboration and add this Rhetoric Guide to your ICON site or put a link to it on your syllabus:
