University Libraries Now Scheduling Instruction SessionsNews item published on: 2016-05-16 15:35:42
Teaching a summer course? University Libraries invites course instructors to schedule a class period with a librarian. The library instruction can be scheduled to occur in a library classroom, in your regular classroom or online using Blackboard. An instruction session with a librarian will teach information literacy skills, expand student understanding of academic sources, and help students to use their time more efficiently to locate appropriate resources. A class visit to the library can also help students to overcome library anxiety. The librarian assigned to teach a class can work with the course instructor to design a lesson tailored to meet the needs of a specific assignment or provide a general introduction to library resources and services.
To schedule library instruction for a class, please complete the online form. You will be asked to provide the day and time of your class along with two preferred dates. At least a week's advance notice is appreciated. University Libraries looks forward to working with you and your students in support of your research needs.
