Library Instruction

Request for Online Library Instruction

What is Information Literacy Instruction?

Library instruction is key to building students' information literacy. Information literacy allows scholars to assess their information needs, find information, evaluate it, and use it appropriately per the ACRL Information Literacy Framework for Higher Education.

Please notify us a week in advance for previously taught library instruction sessions and two weeks in advance for new library instruction sessions to ensure that we can accommodate your request. To assist in planning and get the most out of a library instruction session, we recommend emailing a copy of the assignment or course syllabus to the Instruction Librarian you are working with before your scheduled session.

Request An Instruction Session

The online instruction request form may be used to schedule an information literacy session conducted online to support your course in a LMS such as Blackboard. We can host or join your class via Webex or another platform for a live instruction session. In addition, this form may be used to request the creation of various online research aids such as a course guide, lesson plans, and other services to support your online teaching.

Other requests or inquiries should be directed to Susan Slaga-Metivier, Head Reference / Instruction.
