Information Literacy


One-on-One Research Consultations and Classroom Instruction


  • Ask one of our subject specialist librarians  to come to your class! 
    • Librarians will work with you to design a one-time research demo or a series of workshops. Just let us know if you have 20 minutes or 20 hours!

Library instruction is based on the Association for College and Research Libraries' Framework for Information Literacy. The core concepts of the Framework are:

  • Authority is Constructed and Contextual
  • Information Creation is a Process
  • Information has Value
  • Research as Inquiry
  • Scholarship as Conversation
  • Searching as Strategic Exploration

If you would like to request an instruction session with a librarian or discuss workshop options please fill out the form below. A librarian will respond to your request within 2 to 3 working days.

Evidence & Argument, WKU's Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), articulates a single student learning goal, namely that WKU students will bring evidence and argument to life through written, oral, and visual means. Students will apply and adapt this learning to their professional, social, and personal lives.

This goal is linked to three student learning outcomes:

1. WKU students will demonstrate the ability to gather sound and relevant evidence to address an issue (Evidence-Gathering)

2. WKU students will demonstrate the ability to analyze and synthesize the assembled evidence. (Sense-Making)

3. WKU students will demonstrate the ability to articulate a logical and supported argument based on this analysis. (Argumentation)
