Library Session Objectives

  • Students will manage information skillfully and effectively in a variety of contexts.
  • Students will develop and use successful strategies for locating arts information.
  • Students will evaluate information critically and competently.
  • Students will collaborate successfully with others to pursue and create digital products.



  • All students are expected to attend class regularly and be on time.
  • Strive to be a respectful listener and courteous discussant during student presentations, class discussions, and group work. Discussion participation is more than just talking in class—it also involves listening and thoughtfully responding. 
  • Plagiarism (using the words or ideas of others and failing to acknowledge their contribution) will not be tolerated and may result in a failing grade.
  • Students are expected to prepare for each class session. Assigned reading and viewing should be completed by the dates specified. No late work will be accepted without prior consent.
  • Required software should be installed before class.
  • Turn off cell-phones and all other electronic devices before entering the classroom. Just as you would not talk on your cell phone during class, texting is also rude and inappropriate behavior.
