The First Year Research (FYR) Program is a hybrid information literacy instruction model. FYR replaces the traditional one-shot library instruction class most English 1320 instructors are familiar with. Instead of limiting faculty and students to in-person instruction on research fundamentals, FYR lets users access and apply research coaching on demand.
