Instruction Sessions

Library instruction sessions can be scheduled anytime your classes meet (7:30 a.m. – 9:30 a.m., Monday – Saturday) for any duration (20 minutes, full class, multiple classes). Sessions can be held in the Library Instruction Classroom (L266) or in your classroom. Content is customized to your students' information needs, covering such topics as... 

• Library catalog (books/ebooks) • NoodleTools citation management • ePortfolio
• Library databases (periodical articles) • Evaluating sources • Library tours
• MLA or APA citation • Microsoft PowerPoint or other presentation programs • Additional topics as needed

QuickStart Library Guides often accompany sessions, along with an in-class assignment providing students with hands-on practice with resources. Please adhere to the following guidelines when scheduling and attending instruction sessions:

  • Make requests at least three days before session date.
  • Instructors are required to accompany class or make appropriate arrangements.
  • To provide a syllabus or assignment, email items to Dana Corbin.
