Recommendations for Requesting a Library Session

Librarians are eager to assist you and your students with research instruction! We can provide instruction sessions for every major on campus, and a wide range of topics. Our goal is to enhance students' understanding of the credibility of information sources, ability to develop and modify research questions, and search the library's catalog and databases.

To schedule an instruction session, please use the IDEAL Center reservation page.

In order for your students to get the most out of a library instruction session, please try to adhere to the following recommendations

  • Please submit your request at least one week in advance to ensure the availability of a librarian, access to the library instruction room, and time to plan and prepare the session.
  • Please submit a copy of your syllabus/class schedule and assignment at the time of your request. We use these materials to plan the session and ensure we are teaching at the most effective time.
  • Please schedule your session during a research assignment.  Students should be introduced to the assignment before the session.  Studies have shown that students are the most when library instruction is needed to help students complete a specific assignment.
