Why do my students need Library Instruction?

Many students begin college believing Google can provide all the answers. Concepts such as crafting effective searches and evaluating information may not be familiar to them. Library instruction provides the initial direction students need to navigate the world of information with skill and confidence. Library staff also offer further guidance through one-on-one research help.

How does it work?

Upon request, a Library staff member will work with your schedule to provide live instruction to your class (online or in-person). Topics frequently covered include (but are not limited to) effective searching, source evaluation, and citation techniques. Whether it be a general session such as an introduction to using the Library, or a more focused session on finding resources for a specific assignment, Library staff will tailor the session to your needs.
