Information Literacy

The library’s information literacy program provides students with the tools to perform research effectively and responsibly. It encourages students to think critically about the information they engage with and prepares them for academic research. The information literacy program includes lessons and activities on intellectual property, plagiarism, vetting sources, and the research process, just to name a few. Working closely with teachers, lessons are tailored according to the curriculum and desired learning outcomes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. A list of items available for loan can be found at Boyden Library Services.

Most materials may be renewed for an additional loan period in one of several ways:

Reserves, many interlibrary loans, and items with holds may not be renewed.

Students and others will be charged the cost of replacement for any item not returned after a bill has been issued and for damaged materials.

Reference, rare book collection, some interlibrary loan titles, and the most current issue of a periodical do not circulate and may be used only in the library.

Any library patron may place a hold on a currently-checked-out item. Information Desk staff are happy to place holds or users may place their own holds online (search the Library catalog for the title of interest, if it’s Not Available click the Place Hold button and follow the prompts). Users will receive an email notification once the item is ready for pick-up.
