The Library’s instruction program is built in collaboration with instructional faculty. We work with faculty to develop and implement holistic information literacy instruction that students encounter throughout their studies at Sonoma State University. Learn more about how the Library implements an information literacy curriculum by exploring our services, the library’s curriculum, and statistics.
