Western Kentucky University

Information Literacy

Library faculty are available to teach information literacy and research skills. You may also schedule an appointment with your personal librarian and we'll show you what you need to know in order to get a good grade! Our goal is to help students be successful on term papers and research projects. We also cooperate with the Major-Specific University Experience classes.

For a class or an appointment, contact your personal librarian, E-mail Helm-Cravens Reference at web.reference@wku.edu, or E-mail Department of Library Special Collections at spcol@wku.edu.

Bryan Carson is the Coordinator of Research Instruction.
