Students often use Google and other online tools to find information; however, when it comes to finding academic information for college assignments, they do not always know how or why they should access library resources. Article databases make it easier locate current scholarly articles that have been vetted. Books in the library catch students up on their topics, so they can focus their research and ask more sophisticated questions. 

Library instruction seeks to give students skills and strategies to save time finding the best sources for their assignments. Bringing students to the library can increase a student’s ability and confidence in completing research and writing assignments that need additional information.
