With direct links to online journals, specialized databases, and reference materials, subject guides are a great starting point. We have a subject guide for a variety of undergraduate majors, topics, and courses. Find a list of our guides: http://guides.lib.uiowa.edu/

Resources for Instructors

The SEAM librarians work collaboratively with faculty and instructors to help students develop information literacy skills in support of academic course work and lifelong learning goals. We believe that information literacy is an integral part of a liberal arts education. Our profession has been actively engaged with developing a definition of information literacy for higher education for many years. Currently, the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education offers this definition:

Information literacy is the set of integrated abilities encompassing the reflective discovery of information, the understanding of how information is produced and valued, and the use of information in creating new knowledge and participating ethically in communities of learning.

Rhetoric faculty and instructors can request a meeting to discuss instructional collaboration with a SEAM librarian using this form.

All other faculty and instructor inquiries can be sent to Cathy Cranston: cathy-cranston@uiowa.edu
