Teaching Support

Information Literacy Instruction

Information Literacy is one of Arts & Science’s five undergraduate competencies for “learning and applying knowledge” at the University of Toronto. Kelly librarians have extensive knowledge of and experience with teaching information literacy to students, whether undergraduate or graduate students, large or small classes. We’re keen to pay your students—and your syllabi—a visit!

What We Offer

While we can visit your classroom, we can also host you and your students at the Kelly Library’s 2nd floor computer lab. From databases and primary sources to citation and concept mapping, we can focus on whatever aspect of research you think most useful, and tailor our instruction to your subject area and assignments.

Syllabus Service

The Kelly Library Syllabus Service assists instructors with the creation of an electronic course reader with Quercus. An organized weekly reading schedule that links to electronic articles, UofT Library catalogue records and copyright compliant scans ensures every student has access to the course readings. A Transactional License is purchased for any material that goes beyond the limits of the Fair Dealing section within the Canadian Copyright Act. This service eliminates the student costs associated with course packs and exposes them to the vast resources available from the UofT Libraries.

How it Works

Submit syllabi to Kelly InfoExpress, and staff will begin to collect material, scan chapters, and purchase copyright permissions. This all in one service will post all relevant information to the course’s Quercus webpage.




Course Reserves

Course Reserves amends the loan period of Kelly Library books and DVDs to increase access of the material for students.
