Library Instruction

The library offers a range of instruction including course-integrated information literacy sessions, physical tours of the building and services, online library guides and video tutorials, workshops, and assistance with selecting supplemental course materials.

Librarian-led Instruction

Librarians are available to lead class sessions focused on the development of information literacy concepts and skills, such as topic development, searching for information, evaluating sources, using information effectively and ethically, and staying current with information. Librarians can also work with you to incorporate these same concepts into your online course.

Library Walking Tours

The library offers regular tours of its resources, spaces and places. Tours take approximately 30 minutes and are offered each Sunday at 5pm, and each Tuesday and Thursday at 10am, 1pm, and 7pm. To take the tour, simply visit the Library and IT Service Center on the first floor of the library at these times. Students can be provided with a card verifying their participation at the end of the tour if instructors wish to assign the tour or give extra credit.


Supplemental Materials Selection

Want your students to gain a better understanding of a topic that is not covered in the course textbook? Librarians are available to search for and recommend supplemental readings and media for your course.
