Classroom Instruction

The goal of library instruction is to develop students' research readiness and critical information literacy skills. Information literacy is defined by the Association of College and Research Libraries (2000) as the ability to recognize when information is needed and to find, evaluate, and effectively use said information to solve problems.

Instruction in Copyright and Intellectual Property supports this goal by teaching students that information has value. Copyright sessions at MHC will strive to instill the following dispositions listed by ACRL (2000):

  • respect the original ideas of others;
  • value the skills, time, and effort needed to produce knowledge;
  • and, see themselves as contributors to the information marketplace rather than only consumers of it.
