Library Instruction

Libray Instruction

In order to ensure the best library instruction session for your students, we ask the following:

  • Sessions must be requested at least two weeks in advance.
  • Course instructors must attend and remain with students for the whole session.
  • Free research time in the library can be scheduled as long as the class has received library instruction.

We also recommend the following:

  • Library instruction is most effective when situated around a research assignment. Be sure to include a copy of or a description of the research assignment your students will be working on when submitting your request.  
  • Introduce students to the research assignment prior to the scheduled library instruction. This will make what they learn in the session more applicable.
  • Work with the librarian directly prior to the library instruction. The more we understand your learning goals the more effective the session will be for the students.
