In-Class Instruction

Our computer-equipped Information Technology Lab (ITL) is designed for hands-on instruction in how to use the library and other electronic resources. We can also come to your class elsewhere on campus. Classes can include basic orientation to the library, advanced research for upper-level classes, or specific resources suited to any course assignment. All of the library instruction sessions can be customized for individual classes. Please contact us if you would like more information on library instruction or would like to schedule a session. Please schedule instruction sessions at least 48 hours in advance.

For Library Instruction Requests please email Paula Hopper or Anthony Arcangeli.

Online Course Guide

An online course guide is a research guide specifically designed for a course and/or research project. These guides can cover relevant resources, such as reference source, databases, and librarian-curated websites. They can also include tutorials on the research process, such as website evaluation, scholarly vs. popular sources, and citation guidance. Course guides can be conveniently linked to Blackboard and will be available on the library website. They are usually made to accompany a library instruction session, but you can request an Online Course Guide separate from In-Class Instruction. If you're interested in having a course guide designed specifically for your class, contact Paula Hopper or Anthony Arcangeli.
