Class Instruction

Our computer-equipped Instructional 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. In-class instruction may include basic orientation to the library, advanced research for upper-level classes, navigating specific resources, information literacy, and tips on avoiding plagiarism. All of the library instruction sessions can be customized for individual classes or assignments. Lastly, librarians are able to give digital/remote instruction through Zoom or Blackboard Collaborate as needed. Please contact us if you would like more information on library instruction or would like to schedule a session. Please schedule instruction sessions in advance.

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

Educational Workshops

We can offer varied workshops on relevant library and educational topics. Some examples include:

  • Information Literacy: finding, evaluating, and/or citing sources
  • Media Literacy & Fake News
  • Copyright & Fair Use
  • Open Education Resources (OER)

If you would like to recommend a workshop or schedule a customized workshop for a class or group, please contact Paula Hopper or Anthony Arcangeli.

LibGuides (Research Guides) 

LibGuides are librarian-curated websites featuring library resources and educational content intended for faculty, students, and other researchers. Guides can be either informational (guides about library research, resources, and services) or research (specific curriculum-based guides). Research guides will be available on the library website and can be linked to Blackboard. If you're interested in having a research guide designed specifically for your course, contact Paula Hopper or Anthony Arcangeli.

Please visit our available Research Guides AND our Library Research and Information Literacy Guide (for students).

Research Assistance (Faculty Support)

We can provide support to faculty with research endeavors or with finding and utilizing learning materials. We are here to provide research assistance and collaboration to optimize our community's pedagogy. Please submit a Research Assistance Form or contact Anthony Arcangeli.
