Library Instruction

Librarians are available to instruct students on how to find, use, and evaluate print and electronic information sources.  To schedule a session with a librarian, instructors should  email us at with requests for librarian instruction a minimum of two weeks prior to the anticipated workshop date.  .

The Library Instruction Lab boasts 22 all-in-one desktop computers with 17″ monitors, classroom management software, sleek work areas, and a digital SMARTboard.  To reserve the Instruction Lab, go to the LibCal page and select the room under “Room Bookings” on the upper left side of the page.  

Library Orientations: General library orientations provide a short summary of the library’s resources. Students will learn about the library’s online catalog of in-house, printed materials, as well as be given a brief overview of the multitude of subscription databases. In addition, they will be given a quick tour of the library’s website and all of the various resources available online.

Custom Library Instruction: Schedule a custom library instruction class that introduces library resources and information literacy concepts tailored specifically for your course and/or the needs of a specific group of students. Bibliographic workshops have proven to be especially effective when arranged to coincide with a research assignment.
