A comparison of three approaches to teaching information literacy to engineering students: in-class instruction within engineering departments, in-class instruction in technical writing courses in the English department, and offering sessions outside of regular classes. This is a look at the advantages and disadvantages of each approach. Depending on the situation--the librarian can choose any of these three approaches. The most difficult approach is teaching outside of classes--requires marketing and the instructor making attendance mandatory, tying the class content to assignment completion, or offering extra credit for the class.
