Library Instruction

Librarians are available at each campus to provide library instruction sessions. They can customize the session to meet the needs of you and your students, such as:

  • Assisting with assignment development
  • Database/catalog searching
  • Citation resources and how to avoid plagiarizing
  • Evaluating resources for Timeliness, Relevancy, Authority, Accuracy, and Purpose
  • Searching as strategic exploration
  • Research as inquiry

Instruction sessions are successful when:

  • The instructor is present for the session
  • Students have an assignment and a topic in mind
  • Instruction requests are made at least 1 week in advance to allow time for the librarian to prepare and customize the session to fit your class

Request a session for your class:
