We continue to update our Instruction page. These updates were moved up due to the new challenges related to COVID-19. More tabs will appear on this page throughout the Fall 2020 semester as the revision continues. If you have any suggestions or comments, please contact the Instruction Coordinator via the Contact Us tab on the left.
The Library Instruction Program continues to revise these pages to communicate more effectively with the NMSU and surrounding communities the instruction assistance we offer and provide a perspective of best practices of librarians as educators.
The Library Instruction Program continues to work on improving methods of collecting teaching effectiveness. New surveys and opportunities for engagement, including this page, will continue to be developed.
We're working on cleaning up the library's Library Guides to make them easier for our campus community to search and use. This is a large, ongoing project that will take a while. Our users can expect more relevant results when searching in Research Guides, better organization, and different modes of delivering information.
Faculty should note that in 2019/2020 Course Guides shifted to private links in order to change the search results of Library Research Guides to make the results more relevant to users seeking help with Library resources and research. We have already seen a marked improvement for users searching for help. If you used to have a Course Guide and can't remember the stable URL, contact the Instruction Program to have that sent to you. Our recommendation is to link to these guides directly in your Canvas courses where students can access them more easily.
