Numerous students will have an instruction session in the Library Lab or Classroom at least once during their senior year, while others are required by faculty to "check-in" with a librarian for individualized help with their research over the course of their final year at Concordia. Our outcomes for Information Literacy for senior year are flexible and intended to serve individual faculty members' needs and goals for the course.
