Information Literacy is one of Arts & Science’s five undergraduate competencies for “learning and applying knowledge” at the University of Toronto. Kelly librarians have extensive knowledge of and experience with teaching information literacy to students, whether undergraduate or graduate students, large or small classes. We’re keen to pay your students—and your syllabi—a visit!

What We Offer

While we can visit your classroom, we can also host you and your students at the Kelly Library’s 2nd floor computer lab. From databases and primary sources to citation and concept mapping, we can focus on whatever aspect of research you think most useful, and tailor our instruction to your subject area and assignments.

Kelly Librarians and SMC writing instructors have developed several interactive tutorials to help students produce clearer, more thoughtful essays. The tutorials cover a range of skills and concepts, including narrowing a topic, creating a research question, developing an argument, fine-tuning thesis statements, keyword-searching, understanding primary sources, and gaining confidence with citation.

You can view the tutorials here.

Please feel free to embed one or more instructional tutorials or videos in Quercus. Here’s how:

  • Click the red <> Embed bar beneath a tutorial.
  • Copy the code to your clipboard using CTRL-C (or COMMAND-C on an Apple).
  • Create a page in Quercus and give it a title.
  • Select the </> HTML editor link at the bottom of the editor box.
  • Paste the embed code into the box using CTRL-V (or COMMAND-V on an Apple).
  • Save & Publish the page.

We love feedback! If you have any comments or questions, please contact librarians Richard Carter or James Roussain.

The Kelly Library provides assistance with clarifying the Copyright Act of Canada, ensuring material is within compliance of the law, seeking copyright permissions for material that goes beyond Fair Dealing, and locating alternate sources for when permissions cannot be obtained.
