Library Instruction for Teachers: Home

The purpose of this guide is to highlight the various ways that the library can support teachers in the classroom.

Library Instuction

The NMH librarians are happy to support your students in a variety of ways! We offer information literacy classes with instruction focusing mainly on the following:

  • All stages of the research process
  • Citation styles and using NoodleTools
  • Navigating our online catalog and databases
  • Evaluating resources
  • Primary and secondary Sources
  • Using the NMH archives
  • Finding a book in the library

Typically classes come into the library to our open classroom, aka "The Wayback" for "one-shot" or multiple visits. 

While we specialize in information literacy instruction, we also have taught classes on Wikipedia editing, website design, and zines!

Info Lit

Librarians have created guides that you are welcome to use in your classrooms. These are a great introduction to the topics we cover in our sessions.
