RWWL Philosophy of Instruction
The librarians of the Atlanta University Center Robert W. Woodruff Library view instruction as a starting point in the research process, not the end.
We prepare students for life-long learning and self-education by promoting a network of services, encouraging critical-thinking, and demonstrating responsible scholarship.
We believe that…
- Research is a cyclical process.
- Facts are important, but critical thinking is necessary.
- Scholars grow in research competence.
- Multimodal resources are essential to developing scholars.
We uphold our beliefs by…
- Cultivating strong relationships with our users.
- Asking library users their needs and seeking to meet them.
- Affirming information literacy as a skill-set.
- Teaching and promoting responsible scholarship.
- Employing effective technology in our instruction.
- Marketing library resources and services, while demonstrating how they fit into users' lives.
