Faculty: Library Instruction for your Classes

Reference Librarians are available to instruct your students on library services and resources. Sessions are custom-designed to meet your course needs. We offer Research Overview Workshops (usually 1 session/about 1.5 hrs. of class time) and Comprehensive Research Workshops (2-3 sessions/about 3 hrs of class time).

Your students might also benefit from our online tutorial which is designed to help develop and improve research skills. Faculty, staff, and students are welcome to use this tutorial for individual and/or class use.
