    Instructional Sessions

Librarians routinely present and provide instruction to classes at all levels. Much of our instruction is related to information literacy and the research process. To schedule an instruction session, contact your subject librarian or the library directly.

Upon request, a subject liaison librarian will travel to an off-campus site to provide face-to-face classroom instruction. Contents of presentations (i. e. PPT slideshows and handouts) can be posted online via the online library subject guides or via Blackboard - just email
