Enhance Student Learning with Library Instruction

Students in a class in the Dubin Room in Lauinger Library

Faculty, as you plan your spring courses, contact your subject librarian to work with you, help scaffold learning in your course, and foster student inquiry and research through Library Research Instruction. By using librarians, you can be sure that all students have the same information, understand their responsibilities and know when to ask for help. Instruction sessions also offer you the opportunity to see students working through their initial research challenges and to answer questions. We can:

  • Teach course-specific resources, including finding primary sources, data sets and statistics, non-English language material and images/multimedia, as well as research strategies and citation management software (e.g., RefWorks).
  • Work with students individually in research consultation appointments. Students get one-on-one assistance when they need it.
  • Collaborate with you to craft research assignments to develop student research skills, beginning through advanced levels.
  • Create a specific course guide, be present in Blackboard or Canvas and make tutorials geared to your course needs.

In addition to Library Research Instruction, you can link to our Course Guides, Subject Guides, and Tutorials in Blackboard, Canvas, or your course site. Contact Sandy Hussey, Research Instruction Coordinator, for more information.

In addition, the Library’s Digital Scholarship Librarian can work with you to include Digital Scholarship Instruction in your course on topics like text mining, data visualization and more! Contact digitalscholarship@georgetown.edu to learn more.
