Library and Learning Services (LLS) at Sheridan College is committed to supporting first year students through orientations and information literacy instruction. One area that is often overlooked is introducing students to the importance of academic integrity (AI). In 2016, LLS welcomed an academic integrity facilitator to its staff. This role supports faculty with academic integrity and works with the first year academic skills librarian to support student understanding and awareness of AI, particularly in the first year. This discussion will demonstrate how the library team reorganized itself to support first year students. Conference participants will get a sneak peak of the library’s brand new academic integrity tutorial.
