Research, Instruction & Outreach

The librarians in the Research, Instruction & Outreach department of the Meriam Library contribute to student learning at Chico State by facilitating students' curiosity and critical thinking skills in the process of searching for and evaluating information. Information literacy, an essential skill for life-long learning, is therefore central to the learner-centered approach of our teaching librarians.  We believe that teaching information literacy skills within the context of course-related research will not only improve student research, but also allow students to apply and transfer these skills to other domains, both in their college careers, and beyond. This evidence-based approach furthers the library's aim of fostering critical thinking, lifelong-learning, and curiosity in our students.

There are several ways the Research, Instruction & Outreach department contributes to student success at Chico State:
