Instruction for Courses

Are you assigning a research paper or project for your course? Do your students have the skills or experience to successfully complete the assignment? Library research instruction can help your students improve their research skills and be successful in their coursework. Please use the link below to contact the Library about our teaching programs.

Types of Library Instruction

Our librarians can introduce students to research tools and methods to help them be successful in their coursework and assignments. We can teach students on how to develop an effective search strategy, offer guidance on conducting literature reviews, introduce students to digital primary source collections, and much more. Programs are also a great opportunity for students to meet and consult with our expert librarians who also provide guidance and support by appointment.

Instruction sessions can last an entire class session, span multiple class sessions, or can be as short as 15 to 20 minutes (depending on the topic). Instruction can be provided live, hybrid (if space is available) and via Zoom. If you have a specific request, please reach out and we will see if we an accommodate your specific teaching needs.

Teaching with Primary Sources

The Library has many wonderful primary source collections which can be used for assignments and teaching. From maps and newspapers, to rare books and archives, our librarians and archivists can work with you to develop an effective learning experience for your students.

Digital Scholarship

The Center for Digital Scholarship can work with faculty to design a full suite of classes and hands-on workshops, and online tutorials exploring various digital tools, methodologies, and platforms, and we are happy to work with you to support a specific class project or outcome.
