Our goal is to offer pathways for learning practical research skills that will help the NJIT community – students, faculty, administration and staff – be successful, lifelong learners.
All learners are different, so we employ a variety of methods. These include group and individual instruction offered through open workshops, course-integrated research workshops, handouts, instructional guides, consultation & tutoring, and self-guided online tutorials.
These activities are part of an evolving curriculum-integrated Information Literacy program. Information literacy is a set of abilities requiring individuals to "recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information."* Assessment and research are important parts of our program.
