Our Instructional Offerings

Faculty librarians offer research and library instruction to students, staff, faculty, S2S courses and the community. Types of instruction include:

Library Orientation
Designed to familiarize library users with the University Library and acquaint students with our collections, services, and policies. 

Course- or Assignment-Specific Instruction
Instruction sessions may be tailored to the specific needs of a class, topic, or assignment.

Information Literacy and General Instruction
Information literacy is a set of skills that enable individuals to recognize when information is needed and to have the ability to locate, evaluate and effectively and ethically use the needed information. Topics may include evaluating information, citing sources, academic integrity, and more.

Digital Fluency and Technology Instruction

Online Instruction, Tutorials, and Research Guides

Online tutorials (e.g., plagiarism, popular vs. scholarly sources) may be used by individual students wishing to enhance their skills, or by professors in conjunction with a course or assignment. Most can be embedded into D2L and enhanced with a quiz. Research Guides are also useful for identifying discipline-specific resources.

Individual Assistance/Research Consultations
Librarians are happy to provide one-on-one or small group instruction in the form of research consultations (30-40 minute appointments). Visit our Ask A Librarian page for more information.
