Abstract

For students to understand information sources and to become information literate, first the professors need to have an understanding of library resources to be able to create learning experiences that utilize the subscription information sources available. Zayed University has a program of offerings to help the faculty to become more familiar with finding current information and other means of creating valuable information seeking opportunities for students within and outside the classroom. Many of these sessions for professors are offered during the common break period/lunch time and cover databases, a variety of offerings is what keeps the program vibrant.
