The primary purpose of the Standish Library's instruction program is to foster and develop Siena students' information literacy skills; specifically the ability to identify, locate. effectively evaluate, and use needed information. These are essential skills needed to succeed academically, but are also necessary for the development of lifelong learning. Library instruction sessions are tailored to fir the class. What is covered for a disciplinary course is different than what is covered in a session for the First Year Seminar. Sessions are also tailored for the course level. Library faculty work with the classroom faculty to determine the learning goals of specific sessions.
