The Stony Brook University Libraries instruction program nurtures and develops critical thinking skills for the university community, skills that are applicable inside and outside the academic environment. We create and sustain best practices in assessment, pedagogy, and emerging technologies that elevate our services and enhance information literacy. We act as an essential partner in the research and learning activities and initiatives of the university.
