Faculty Toolkit: Library Instruction

Library Instruction

Want a librarian to visit your class? Book a library instruction session! These tailored workshops teach students about navigating library resources and critically evaluating information.


Library instruction sessions are offered in in-person, virtual, and hybrid formats. They can range from a broad overview of library resources to instruction targeted to a specific assignment. A librarian will work with you to make sure your students receive the information they need to be successful.

Book a Session

  • Please submit your library instruction request at least one full week in advance.
  • Book instruction session early, if possible, to secure your preferred date and time.
  • Too much time (or not enough time) between the session and assignment is not always effective.
  • Provide the librarian with supporting documentation of the assignment's details and any other pertinent information.
  • Determine clear learning outcomes for the session and communicate these to the librarian.
  • Consider requesting several short sessions, which are often better than one long session.

LSCI 125

In addition to instructional sessions, the Library offers a full 3-credit course, LSCI 125, which fulfills a general education requirement. Consider recommending this course to help students grow into informed, critical users of information in their coursework and their lives beyond college.
