Library Instruction Enhances Student Learning

Students in the Dubin Room

As you plan your fall courses, be sure to contact the Library to discuss your students' learning needs. Students may not be aware of the many online library resources and services available to them, particularly this year. The Library offers virtual instruction options that can be integrated with your courses—both synchronous class instruction via Zoom and asynchronous options like online tutorials and research and course guides.

We can work with you to help scaffold learning and foster student inquiry. By scheduling a library instruction session, you can be sure that all students will have the same information, are equipped to successfully complete their assignments, and know where to ask for help.

Several library departments provide instruction sessions on topics ranging from research skills to multimedia production. Find assistance for your specific needs in the table below. In addition, staff across the library can coordinate with each other so that you and your students have the best experience possible.
