Information about scheduling Instruction sessions with the Reference Librarians.

Instruction - MAIN CONTENT

Library instruction is tied to the information literacy standards set forth by the Association of College and Research Libraries. You are encouraged to work with a librarian to customize a library session best suited to your students’ needs.

There are several things you can do to help ensure a successful library session:

  • Schedule your session when students are beginning their research. Students pay more attention when they have a direct need for the information.
  • Consider two shorter sessions rather than one long session. One idea is to have a presentation in your classroom and then a follow-up, hands-on session in the computer lab.
  • Work with the librarian to customize your session. If you are not sure which resources would best serve your students, the librarian will be happy to make recommendations based on your assignment.
  • Attend the session with your students. This shows your students the importance of the session and is helpful if a student needs clarification on the assignment. Also, faculty comment positively about how much they learn during the session. Technology changes quickly and attending the session with your students helps you keep up with new resources.

We constantly review feedback from faculty to improve our session offerings and welcome any comments you may have. To schedule a session, contact one of the Reference Librarians listed below.
