Request a Library Instruction Session
Please submit your request at least two weeks in advance to ensure the availability of a librarian, access to a classroom, and time to plan and prepare the session.
Please provide at least two date choices and schedule your session during your regular class or discussion section meeting time.
Please schedule your session when you or your discussion section Teaching Assistant(s) can attend. We are not able to take attendance or pass around sign in sheets.
Please submit a copy of your syllabus/class schedule and assignment at the time of your request. We use these materials to plan the session and ensure we are teaching at the most effective time.
Please schedule your session during a research assignment. Students should be introduced to the assignment before the session. We can work with students when they already have a topic chosen or work with them to identify and develop a topic during the session. As a general rule for undergraduate classes, we only teach when students have to do research for the course and do not provide general orientations or overviews of the library.
