As part of the program of support offered by our librarians, we are able to work with your students in sessions designed to introduce them to research fundamentals and provide an overview of general and subject-specific resources to facilitate their scholarship.
Typically, a library instruction session lasts between 30-75 minutes, depending on your preferences and what material will be covered. Here are some possible skills we can cover in the library instruction session:
For more ideas and suggestions about what we can cover, consult the Information Literacy Modules Guide, which you can use to select concepts for inclusion in our session.
Generally, library instruction sessions are hands-on workshops rather than individual lectures. In order to make the workshop portion of the class useful, we do like students to have access to a computer. If your current classroom has computers the library instruction session can be taught there. If your classroom does not have appropriate individual technology, students can bring their laptops or we can schedule the instruction session to take place in an instruction room in the library.
