Request a Library Class

Submit this form to schedule a library 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 these conditions in order for your class to be scheduled.

For the Fall 2020 semester, library classes will be conducted online via Zoom or Blackboard Collaborate. Recorded video lectures may also be requested. In-person instruction in the library or a campus classroom will not be available.

Library instruction cannot be scheduled for the first week of the semester. Library instruction is most effective when it is aligned with a class assignment. Scheduling a library session for a date about 2-4 weeks before the research paper/project is due is recommended. 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 be able to provide reference assistance to other students during your class time.

The instructor's presence and participation is required during the library class. Students are motivated when the instructor is with them. Instructors' comments and answers to questions help students understand the 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 meeting, submit an Embedded Librarian Request https://northamptoncc.libstaffer.com/form/embeddedlibrarian
