Invite a Librarian to My Class

A note about the Fall 2020 semester:

In efforts to keep everyone safe, the Library will only be offering class and personal instruction sessions online. There will be no in-person sessions until further notice.

A Librarian Can Show My Class How To

  • Use the library databases to find articles
  • Find books & e-Books using the library catalog
  • Provide resources to help your student cite sources in APA style
  • And much more!

When Should I Invite a Librarian Into My Class?

This is most effective at the time of need:

  • schedule a session along with an assignment
  • send librarian a copy of the assignment

Give us time to prepare for the class:

  • this allows us to customize the session in order to meet specific needs of the class
  • please give us at least 3 days notice when scheduling session for in-seat and online classes
  • if you are requesting a video, keep in mind that videos will take up to two weeks to complete

Instructors are expected to be present in the classroom during the session.
