What - All Library instruction sessions are aimed to cultivate information literacy in your students. The content of the instruction session could vary based on faculty requests and could include instruction on developing a research topic and selecting keywords, finding books and articles in library catalog and databases, and finding and evaluating information on the internet. Please note that we ask you to be present during the session.
Where - We primarily conduct instruction sessions in the Library’s Computer Lab.
When - Instruction sessions take place during your usual class time. Please give as much advance notice as possible when requesting an information session, to ensure a time slot is available, and to give the librarian time to prepare the session. In general, a lead time of two weeks is requested, although the library may be able to accommodate requests made with less advance notice.
