To request library research instruction for your class, please complete an online Instruction Request Form. We ask that you complete the form at least one week in advance for weekday daytime classes, two weeks ahead for evening or weekend classes.

Sessions can be led by a librarian or self-led by the classroom faculty. Librarian-led workshop and orientation sessions can provide an orientation to the library, teach general or assignment driven research and information literacy skills, or teach students how to use a variety of subscription databases. Self-led sessions can take place in the Forecasting area with the possibility of extending it to a nearby classroom to use related databases.
