What do developing a research topic, locating and evaluating sources, formatting a bibliography, and understanding algorithmic bias in Google search results have in common? They are all aspects of information literacy, and information literacy is what librarians do. (See the 'Information Literacy' pages on this guide for more information).
Working with a librarian can help you integrate information literacy concepts into your assignments or throughout your course curriculum. 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.

Want more information, have questions about assignment design, or want to share other ideas for collaboration? Let your library liaison, Katie Hassman, know.
The librarians at The University of Iowa Libraries are sharp, savvy, and fun to work with. I found collaborating with them not only painless but pleasant and instructive. Their expertise helped me both in my teaching and my graduate student research. Go see the librarians!
