USC Libraries uses the Association of College & Research Libraries‘ Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education as well as discipline-specific standards as guiding documents for instructional services.

Information literacy combines a repertoire of abilities, practices, and dispositions focused on expanding one‘s understanding of the information ecosystem, with the proficiencies of finding, using and analyzing information, scholarship, and data to answer questions, develop new ones, and create new knowledge, through ethical participation in communities of learning and scholarship.

NOTE: To allow for the customization that optimizes student learning, teaching faculty must request library sessions seven business days in advance.

To schedule a class with Special Collections, please see their Instructional Services & Classes page.

For questions about the form and your request, please contact Library Instruction at, or Elizabeth Galoozis, (213) 821-0097,
