Library instruction sessions consist of orientations, tours or class visits that will help your students become information literate. An information literate student can recognize when information is needed and can define the need for information. He or she is able to locate, evaluate, use, and cite the needed information effectively.
Please complete this form to request a library instruction session for your class. Instruction by a librarian takes place in one of the library’s multimedia classrooms during your class time and usually incorporates a hands-on activity. You can also schedule instruction in your classroom, but with limited or no hands-on activities depending on your classroom equipment. Allow at least one week between the time you submit this form and your requested date. Requests are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. A librarian will contact you to confirm your instruction appointment.
1. Library instruction sessions work best for students after you have approved their research topics.
2. It is important to us librarians to have the instructor present during the session. We find that when you are present during library instruction sessions, students tend to pay more attention, ask questions, and take notes. You will also be in the best position to answer questions related to their assignment, emphasize certain points that come up during the session, and ask the librarian to address other pertinent topics.
