Library Instruction

  • Library faculty are available to teach class sessions for students, faculty, and staff on the research process, specific databases, or orientations to the physical building and collections.
  • They can assist faculty in developing assignments and learning experiences that will enable students to reach learning objectives.
  • Librarians regularly teach introductory strategies for research and resources to students in English 1030 (Freshman/Sophomore Composition) and some Cornerstone classes. However, sessions on more sophisticated and specialized information strategies in subject-specific areas are encouraged.
