Questions? Contact Cathy Le, Instruction and Outreach Services Librarian. 

Please make requests two weeks prior to your library instruction session first choice date. Kindly allow 72 hours for a response, especially in the first few weeks of the semester. 

Why?

Integrating library instruction into your class provides the context that students need to connect the importance of library research into their academic career.

We can create customized instruction sessions for your course or a particular assignment including selecting and narrowing a topic, using computer databases and the library catalog, search strategies, critical thinking, locating resources, and correct documentation format. Also, we can collaborate with you to effectively integrate information competency into your curriculum and assignments. This can make a difference when reading papers and seeing Wikipedia sources versus academic level resources. Additionally, it can help to cut down plagiarism on assignments you receive.
