Helping Your Students Learn the Library

We love to have classes come to the library (or we can come to your classroom, especially for larger classes) to get some library instruction specifically for the particular course you're teaching. 

This form is a quick and easy way to request a library session for one or multiple sections of a course.


Online classes are mostly taught on Brightspace, and may in-person classes have a Brightspace component. 

Embedding a librarian in your course is an easy process. This allows a librarian to comment and help students with research within their online course. We are flexible in what areas librarians can access and level of participation. This is another way to get students more comfortable communicating with librarians and seeking research help. Like other methods, it can help the students gain some comfort and experience before the crunch time of midterm and final papers, projects and other big assignments. 


Requiring students to stop by reference for a quick meeting can substantially improve their understanding of resources. Making this a requirement or offering a bit of extra credit makes students more inclined to come by the library than if it's just an option. This is a quick and easy way for students to get some help that doesn't take away from class time. Students who do this are more inclined to ask for library help when they have more substantial questions too!
