The LSC-Kingwood Library’s instruction is focused on building information literacy and multimodal fluency. Our instruction follows the Association of College and Research Library frameworks (2015) and standards (2011).  Our instruction goals are to train students to access, evaluate, and ethically use information.

The framework on which our goals are developed are:

  • Authority is constructed and contextualized
  • Information creation as a process
  • information has value
  • Research as inquiry
  • Scholarship as a conversation
  • Searching as conversation
Call Mikha Mitchell to schedule a session.

Important notes:

  • Book your class for a library session no later than two weeks in advance to the day of the session. This is particularly important for evening and weekend classes.
  • Timing is very important to ensure the success of the session. Librarians design the information literacy session based on the stage of research your students will be upon their arrival in the Library. 
  • Provide a digital copy of the research-based assignment that is tied to the session.
  • Consider and share the following information:
    • When the assignment will be given to students
    • When the assignment will be due
    • Days and time of your class
    • Class culture and information literacy challenges that you have noticed
  • Tell us what your expectations are for the session and how it will influence the results in the assignment.
  • Think about having a follow-up session to cover more aspects of information literacy that are related to your assignment. -It is difficult to cover multiple information literacy skills in one session.


  • Collaborate with a librarian when designing a research assignment. We can help identify information challenges and offer practical suggestions.
  • Our team of librarians creates subject and assignment guides to supplement instruction. These are called LibGuides. (You are in one now!) It is a content management software that provides the ability to design dynamic web 2.0 based pages to help guide your student through a research project.
    • The guides can be easily embedded into your D2L classroom by copying the URL.
