Library Instruction

Hunter College’s Instruction Librarians provide students with strategies to think critically about information: its credibility, its forms, its functions, and the tools we use to discover it. While courses are primarily remote, we are offering both sychronous and asynchronous lessons; we will work with course instructors to find the best match for your students' needs.
