Resources for Moving to Online Instruction: Library Instruction

Information and temporary resources available to faculty for online instruction.

Library Instruction

Students who know their way around the physical library and the library's rich array of electronic resources are better students! Librarians help students learn to navigate library resources and by teaching information literacy skills.

Library instruction lessons can range from a broad overview of library resources to instruction targeted to a specific assignment. The librarian will work with you to make sure your students receive the information they need to be successful.

Schedule a library instruction for your class by submitting the Library Instruction Request Form.

The Library has developed several video tutorials that you might also find useful in your teaching.  These can be used in the classroom or embedded in D2L.
