Information Literacy Resources: Request Library Instruction

Provides information on information literacy Framework and assignments designed to teach information literacy.

Request Library Instruction

Library instruction is a useful tool for any class required to conduct research or gather information for presentations, assignments, or exams. In addition to guiding students to the best print and electronic sources for their research, library instruction can also reduce anxiety for less skilled researchers, assist in broadening or narrowing a topic, distinguish between scholarly and popular material, and give students a base to conduct future research.

Each instruction session is tailored to address the exact topics and areas of research in your class. So that we may customize each session to meet your needs, please use the following guidelines to schedule a session:

  • Use the Library Instruction Request Form to schedule your session now.  We are happy to work with you to design sessions to be of most benefit to your students.
  • Schedule an instruction session as far in advance as possible. In order to create custom user guides for each class, at least a two week notice is required.
  • Due to limited space in the lab, class size is limited. If you have classes larger than 40, we may need to split the group into two sessions. If you have Internet access in your classroom, it will be possible for us to come to you. Allow additional time to set up the proper equipment.
  • If you have any questions about scheduling library instruction or designing an appropriate library assignment, please contact the librarian who does instruction for your collegiums.
