Request a Library Class

 

Submit this form to schedule library, research, or information literacy instruction session for your students. A librarian will be assigned based on your preference (if any), your primary campus location, and librarian availability. Please submit your request at least 1 week in advance of your preferred class date.

* is required

Please review the following information. You must consent to and honor these conditions in order for your class to be held.

Library classes can be held in-person or online through Zoom or Blackboard Collaborate. Librarian visits to a campus classroom may be accommodated at the discretion of the teaching librarian. Recorded video lectures may also be requested. 

Scheduling library instruction during the first week of the semester is not recommended. Our classes are most effective when they are aligned with an assignment. Scheduling a library session about 2-4 weeks before a research assignment is due is ideal. Provide the assignment instructions to your librarian prior to the class. 

Requests submitted less than 1 week in advance of your preferred session date may not be able to be accommodated. This time allows for scheduling delays, gives your librarian time to prepare, and ensures we'll still be able to provide research help to other students during your class time.

Your presence and participation as the instructor is required during the library class. Students are more motivated when their instructor is with them and your comments and answers to questions help students understand your assignment and how research fits into it.

If you'd like or need a librarian to work with your students in your Blackboard course throughout the semester in addition to a library class, submit an Embedded Librarian Request
