...all specifically tailored to your assignment and your course content. If you're interested in a topic not listed here please contact us to see if it falls in the scope of our instructional program. We'll do our best to accommodate your needs.

What to expect: Length

A typical library instruction session runs for about 60 minutes; more time can be useful when students need one-on-one help. For instruction that covers several stages of the research process, multiple (shorter) sessions throughout the quarter may be most useful to your students.

What to expect: Location

Computer classroom: best when your students are expected to analyze websites or use databases to find articles.

The library: best when your students need to use materials not available electronically

Your classroom: best when covering more conceptual stages of the research process like plagiarism or refining topics
