Library Instruction

Library Instruction Services

Librarians are available to consult with faculty and instructors to create or revise effective research assignments and classroom activities that foster critical thinking, evaluation skills, and promote lifelong learning.

Librarians can help you:

  • Understand students' research capabilities.
  • Create, revise, or offer suggestions on your research-based assignments.
  • Talk about alternatives to traditional research papers or presentations.
  • Identify and discuss library resources suitable for an online class research guide
  • Provide individualized training on library resources.

    • Remember to schedule at least 7 days in advance of when you would like your library instruction session to occur, and
    • Supply a copy of your syllabus and assignment description(s).
