Pendergrass Library Instruction

The UT Libraries are partners in student and faculty success. Librarians are committed to meeting students and faculty where you are and to fostering intellectual curiosity, creativity, and lifelong information literacy. Taken from the Association of College and Research Libraries Information Literacy Framework, information literacy comprises a set of skills that help one navigate and understand the complicated ecosystems where information is available.

Through our instructional practices, we seek to acknowledge, incorporate, and amplify the diverse backgrounds and experiences of our community of learners. We are committed to engaging in dialogue and investing in the ongoing learning necessary to do this work. Visit the Libraries’ Diversity Committee page to learn more about our commitment to inclusion and to read our Diversity Statement.

The instruction team at Pendergrass Library is dedicated to collaborating with instructors in Herbert College of Agriculture and the College of Veterinary Medicine to develop meaningful sessions, assignments, tutorials, and other resources that will enrich the student learning experience.
