How can we help your seated or hybrid class? Here are some instruction options to consider:
This session includes a tour of the physical library, an introduction to library resources and services , and overview of the library web site. Regularly offered as open workshops at the beginning of each semester.
A librarian can come to your classroom to deliver a presentation. Our new mobile circulation app will enable us to bring materials with us and check them out outside the library!
A librarian can tailor the session around a specific assignment. Talk to the librarian about the timeline for your assignment so we can find the optimal time to introduce students to resources.
We want to connect students to the best resources for their needs. LibGuides are used to recommend titles or databases, provide instructions and search tips and to help students easily contact the library staff.
We can make as many guides and pages as we need – you can view all of the current guides here. Currently, content ranges from broad academic skills (e.g., plagiarism) to resources for a given discipline (psychology, nursing, etc.), and even pages targeting specific assignments (such as a class debate for ENG 112).
We can help you to link to any library content.
We have self-contained Moodle modules (with assessments) which can be seamlessly imported into your Moodle course.
We are happy to collaborate with you to develop any content for your Moodle course.
We can connect with your students as a class, or individually to provide instruction in research and use of library resources for any subject area.
We're open to new ideas! Let's talk about what your classes are up to and how we can collaborate.
Every month, the library offers a schedule of workshops open to anyone. If you'd like to offer extra credit to students who attend, please notify library staff. We will provide proof of attendance.
Librarians welcome recommendations for workshop topics. However, as attendance is much higher when course points are attached, we prioritize those extra-credit sessions when making the schedule.
We will schedule one-on-one meetings with students in support of a research assignment. Please contact us if you're interested, and refer students to the library. (Note: digital consultations using Zoom are available by appointment and open sessions..)
