Classroom Library Instruction

The Libraries provides information literacy (IL) instruction to aid library patrons in becoming independent and lifelong learners. There are two (2) categories of IL instruction sessions available to faculty and students: classroom type and quick start/individualized sessions (popularly known as Face-to-Face with RIA (Roving Information Assistant)).

For classroom library orientation, the following modules are available:

Module 1: Library Research Basics and Tour

A 1.5 to 2-hour lecture and tour specifically designed for new students to introduce the different library resources and services and learn the basics of finding information.

Module 2: Subject Database Searching

A 2 to 3-hour intensive hands-on demonstration and practice on using the various subject databases.

Module 3: Library Basics and Database Searching

A 2 to 3-hour basic lecture and hands-on teaching on conducting library research and multi-disciplinary database searching

Module 4: Specialized Instructions

A customized, course-related instruction that focuses on advanced IL skills.
