Library Instruction

Library instruction can significantly improve student performance on research-based assignments. Librarians can provide assignment specific help for students in your classroom or in a computer lab on campus. Instruction can be held as full class period, half class period, or even just drop in sessions. Contact one of our librarians to discuss how an instruction session can help your students.

We can work with faculty to develop assignments that lead students through the research process and develop information literacy skills. Librarians can review assignments to ensure required resources are available to students.
