Information Literacy Teaching Resources
"Information literacy" refers to abilities and understandings needed for finding, evaluating, using, and creating information. The Library's Instructional Services Department collaborates with course instructors to support information literacy education in a number of ways. This page describes instructional services and links to other information literacy resources.
These guides are intended for instructors interested in helping students develop their abilities to engage and to use information sources critically and reflectively.
More Teaching & Research Resources
Librarians offer you or your students reference services in-person, via chat, and by appointment. Please inform your students about the library's reference services and consider linking to them in your CourseDen site and/or syllabus.

You can now access online databases and e-journals using your UWG ID and Password.
General databases cover a wide range of topics. Start your searches here to find overviews and the latest advances.
Subject-specific databases cover only one field. For most in-depth research, consult at least one subject-specific database. Topics may be covered by multiple databases.
- Video: Select the correct database for your topic.
- Slow Internet: The Subject Guide for your major suggests databases (usually under the Articles tab).
Accessing Full-Text Articles
In databases, find full articles by clicking links like Full Text, HTML Full Text, or PDF. Many databases include more articles than they have in full-text. You can still access articles with no full text.
To find out how to access a particular article, look for the link that says ‘Find a Copy,’ , or
- Databases that have Full Text, EBSCOhost, or ProQuest in the title will have many full-text articles.
- Databases that have abstract or index in the title often have no full-text articles at all.
