Teaching Support Options

  • Librarian-led instruction sessions (in-person or online) - Librarians are available to lead class sessions focused on the development of information literacy concepts and skills, such as topic development, searching for information, evaluating sources, using information effectively and ethically, and staying current with information.  A minimum of 14 days notice is required for librarian-led sessions.  
  • Information literacy consultations with librarians - Librarians are available to provide information literacy consultations for new and existing course materials and assignments.  Many lessons and assignments inherently contain information literacy elements that may be enhanced with small modifications. 
  • Tutorials - The library has created several tutorials to help students develop fundamental information literacy skills.  Occasionally, through consultations with librarians, it is determined a course may benefit from a customized tutorial developed by librarians.
  • Course guides - Librarians are available to develop customized web sites for classes, referred to as "course guides." Course guides emphasize the resources that are most relevant and instructor-recommended for students' use in a particular class.
  • Assistance with supplemental materials selection - Want your students to gain more of an understanding of a certain topic that is not covered in the course text book? Librarians are available to search for and recommend supplemental materials, such as book chapters and articles, for classes.
