Schedule custom virtual library instruction. When you schedule this service, we’ll contact you to discuss what would be most effective for your class. For example, we can:

  • Pre-record a session or provide a live webinar. Session types include:
    • General orientation
    • Discipline-specific session
    • Assignment-specific session
  • Provide a tutorial (interactive, video, or PDF)
  • Create a course guide tailored to a specific research assignment
  • Develop a brief information literacy assignment
  • Provide students with individualized feedback on their research plan
  • Help locate resources and/or create persistent links for a course

Complete the Library Instruction Request Form or contact your liaison librarian a minimum of 2 weeks in advance. Please note that we prearrange all WRIT 1101 and 1102 library instruction sessions with the Writing Program Director.

Our General Library Research Tutorial consists of 6 modules designed to help freshmen, sophomores, and others new to researching develop their information-seeking and evaluation skills. Each module concludes with a brief quiz, and the tutorial concludes with a comprehensive quiz. If you choose to assign the tutorial or a specific module for credit, simply let your liaison librarian know, and we’ll send you your students’ results. You can view information about our liaison librarians on this page below.

Discover all of the library tutorials here. Share this page with your students in your D2L or Engage course.
