Library Instruction Request Form

Improving student information literacy is one of the Library's key responsibilities. 
Library faculty will work with classroom faculty to develop library instruction sessions that can take shape in a number of scenarios:

  • 30-90 minute session(s) in the library or your classroom
  • Library faculty connected to your course through Blackboard, via in person visits, or both!
  • Request an instruction session using this form:  
    At least 2 weeks notice required

    Beginning Spring 2018 semester: Library instruction sessions will not be conducted during the first two weeks of the semester (January 29- February 9. 2018)
    We will offer 30 minute walk-in tours during that time. Details to come.

What can be covered?
Work with a librarian to develop a session that best suits your needs and  is geared towards your subject area or a specific assignment. Examples include (but are not limited to):

  • Information literacy: How to determine what information is needed, identify the most appropriate resource and evaluate the information they find. This approach works for both visual and written concepts.
  • Research skills and techniques (including citing sources): in general or subject specific
  • Print & online library resources:
    We're more than books! We can introduce your students to subject-appropriate materials including fashion and trend forecasting services, fashion/art/culture periodicals from around the world (we subscribe to 400+), article/business/image/reference databases, picture files, designer files, DVDs and so much more.
  • Visual and inspirational research, including how to do effective image research
  • How to find scholarly articles
  • How to research a business and/or market
