Library Instruction



The Boston College Libraries instruction program supports academics, scholarship, and lifelong learning. We offer instruction on library and research skills at all levels and for all course modalities, including online courses. Our goal is to lead instruction sessions where all learners are able to succeed.  We are working toward incorporating inclusive teaching practices and frameworks such as Universal Design for Learning, Culturally Responsive Teaching, and Trauma-Informed Teaching.
