Before You Schedule
Need library instruction for your class? We can create a customized lesson for a specific assignment or on a particular topic.
If your course includes a research component, you can request an Embedded Librarian who will work with your students for the entire semester. The Embedded Librarian will be added to your course shell and will work with you and your students to meet the information needs of the class. This librarian will be able to answer questions related to library services and resources and will also be able to assist students with navigating the complex information environment available to them. The Embedded Librarian can help students with identifying and utilizing library resources that will support their work for your class. Whether students need help with selecting search terms, developing search strategies, or locating relevant resources once they have been identified, the Embedded Librarian will be able to assist them.
Request asynchronous MATERIALS to be shared with your students:
Teaching an asynchronous class but still want library instruction? We can record a class session for a specific assignment or on a particular topic. This is very similar to the Live Remote Library Instruction, but recorded for asynchronous delivery.
Get started using your own, specialized Research Guide designed specifically for your department or your course section. Find the best databases, journals, articles, books, eBooks, websites, and more for what you're researching!
We can create a video tutorial for your specific class and assignments.
Jump start your students' library-related skills from one of these curated tutorials, or request a new tutorial for a specific database, literacy information skill, or other topic.
Need a handout or worksheet about your favorite citation style, PICOT, developing a topic, or other key skills? We can do that!
