We offer instruction on library and research skills at all levels. Our mission is to promote students’ understanding and use of information in the discovery, creation and transmission of knowledge to enhance their academic experience. We look forward to meeting with you and to working with your students.
Some sample sessions include:
Introduction to Library Resources - Librarians work closely with students to introduce a variety of resources and services, especially useful for students new to the university.
Subject-Related Instruction - Overviews of discipline-specific collections and research practices, working in conjunction with faculty requests.
Technology-Related Instruction - Introduces participants to new technologies that can help with research. Participants gain an understanding of a new technology and how it relates to their current work.
Assignment-based Instruction - Librarians collaborate with faculty to match library instruction to specific course objectives, such as providing specific research tools and suggestions based on research assignments. May span more than one class period.
Blended Instruction - Librarians work with faculty to integrate libary materials with Canvas, either by directly adding the librarian to the Canvas course, or by providing content to enhance an in-person library instruction session.
Our goal is to enhance a student's understanding of the research process by introducing them to the resources, tools, and methodologies needed to be successful in their courses. We aim to work with faculty to develop sessions tailored to meet the needs of a specific course or class. We welcome feedback and recommendations for future instructional topics.
