NMSU Library offers a program of hands-on instruction that promotes effective use of the library and other information resources. Library instruction gives students the skills to locate, use, and evaluate information. These skills lead to increased academic success, better papers, and higher quality research projects while reducing library anxiety and the incidence of plagiarism.
Because library instruction sessions require planning, preparation, and reservation of the library's instruction rooms, you should arrange library instruction sessions as far in advance as possible. Have a back-up date in mind – in case your first choice of date is not available.
You should be present at the scheduled session to help answer students' questions and reinforce the importance of learning to use the library.
