Instructional Services


The purpose of library instruction is to facilitate students’ engagement in creative and critical thinking about research and information resources. Our work supports students’ development as knowledge creators, lifelong learners, and participants in scholarly and academic conversations.

Schedule Session

Most sessions are 30-90 minutes depending on the content. Requests for sessions must be made two weeks in advance.

When scheduling a library session, base your choice of date on when the session will be most relevant to your students. Try not to schedule a library session too early or late in the research process.

Discuss the applicable paper or project with your class before attending the library session.

Faculty must attend the library session with their students. Students are more attentive and engaged when the instructor is present. We also encourage faculty to contribute to the discussion and emphasize points they feel are important.
