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 2020 Library Instruction COVID-19 Response

Because of COVID-19 the physical library, including our wonderful labs, are currently closed for an undetermined amount of time.

As such, the only instruction we are able to offer for Fall 2020 is online library instruction. Please see the table below for for more information. The Librarians are working hard on multiple new options for Faculty to integrate library instruction into their courses.

We're so sorry for the inconvenience and we are committed to providing your students the same quality library instruction as an in-person instruction session.
