Especially For Faculty

Information about library services, collections, and spaces to support teaching, learning, and research for faculty and their classes.

Library Instruction

Librarians partner with teachers to help students learn how to identify and locate information, engage with it critically, and use it appropriately. We can also work with your students on creating work in special formats (e.g., brochure; poster; podcast) and on citing their sources. And we're always up for new ideas! 

What we ask of you:

  • Please request instruction (session or LibGuide) at least a week in advance.
  • Plan to be present during in-person instruction sessions.
  • Share with your librarian any assignments or projects that students will be working on.
  • Canvas users: consider adding your librarian to your class / adding a link to the LibGuide to your Canvas sidebar.

What we offer:

  • In-person sessions: Bring your class to the library for one meeting, part of a meeting, or across multiple meetings for a librarian-led session that is tailored to your needs. (Or, we can come to you!)
  • On-call sessions: Plan a research day at the library; a librarian can be available on the sidelines, ready to help out as students encounter questions and problems.
  • LibGuides: Librarians create research guides that gather in one place the information that students will need to begin their research. LibGuides can be created to stand on their own or in conjunction with library instruction.
  • Learning objects: We can create handouts, presentations, screencasts, or other materials to support your students in the research process.
  • Need something else? Let's talk! We're happy to work together to come up with the most effective way to work with your students.
