Library Instruction Program

Library Instruction for Faculty's Courses

Library instruction is for faculty interested in having a librarian visit their class. For individual help understanding and navigating Library resources, please contact the Reference Desk via any of the methods on the Library's Ask Us! page

Fall 2021 Library Instruction COVID-19 Response

The Zuhl Instruction Lab is open again for the fall semester. Due to COVID-19 the following restrictions are in place for the lab:

  • Masks must be worn by everyone in the room at all times.
  • Both classroom doors (back and front) must be kept open for the duration of the class, for better room ventilation.
  • As usual, food and drink are still not permitted in the instruction lab.

Our new instruction request form is live, and will include choices for in-person and online instruction. You can also view the "Adding Library Resources into your Canvas Course" tab to learn about our basic library instruction module.

We're glad to be back on campus with our wonderful NMSU community.
