The library encourages you to bring your classes into the library for instruction. Most instructors ask for the basic library/information literacy instructional session, which may include (depending on your needs):
- Library hours, access, etc.
- Library organization and finding books
- Accessing e-resources
- Focusing a topic & choosing keywords
- Evaluating information
- Finding webpage information
- Getting additional help
The library customizes each session toward a class or project & can further customize any instructional session by concentrating on any aspect of research (e.g., focusing a topic, finding articles, citing sources). Most students feel overwhelmed when we try to fit everything in, so we suggest focusing on 1-2 items on the list above or customizing a session.
