To schedule a library instruction session:

Below are the different types of library instructions faculty can request. Requests can be made for one or more instruction types in a single session or in separate session.

  • Library Basic: A 10-15 minute lecture introducing students to the library website and online resources.

  • Library Tour: Walking through the library, students will learn where resources are located. 10 to 15 minutes in length.

  • Course Specific: Faculty can customize an instruction based on a research project or projects. Instructions can be as short as 10 minutes or as long at 2 hours.

  • Clickers Instruction: Clickers are also known as a student response system. Instruction can be built around using clickers to engage students. Length of the instruction is dependent upon research project/research needs.

  • Research Help: This type of instruction does not necessarily include instruction. Rather a librarian will book a computer lab for the class and be available to answer questions as students conduct research. Any length of time is available.

Library Instruction sessions can be:

  • In a Library computer lab (40 computers max)
  • In your classroom- we come to you!
  • As long (or as short) as you need it to be!

Note: Some courses have an Information Literacy designation and require an instruction session with a librarian. To determine if your class has the designation, visit the Library's Information Literacy guide.
