What faculty need to know about our libraries that support teaching, research and student-centered success.


As a library instruction option to help students learn and enhance their Information Literacy and research skills, Snow College offers Library and Information Literacy Canvas modules. The Canvas Modules can be integrated into your course or used with face-to-face library instruction.. If you are a current Snow College faculty member, you can contact us to be added to the Canvas course. Below is an overview of the Canvas Modules. 


This Library Orientation and Introduction to College Research Toolkit works as a companion to research assignments by providing a brief introduction to the Snow College Library and in-depth learning of College Research skills.  These modules can help students in all Snow College classes be more successful students while at Snow College and beyond.  Library and Research skills are an essential component of success in education and life. These up-to-date modules provide relevant and current information that addresses many of the modern-day information challenges our students encounter in our digital world. 

How can you use the modules? Every faculty member can import all or selected modules in the toolkit to courses where library usage and research skills are needed for course success. Be sure to check back each semester for any changes to tutorials, so your students have the most up-to-date information to help them with their library and information literacy college success.

The Canvas course integrates with a current open education resource, Introduction to College Research and provides faculty with ancillary materials (quizzes, discussion, critical thinking exercises and additional resources).
