Faculty: Book a library instruction session
Faculty may request information literacy instruction, available via MyCourses (D2L) both synchronously and asynchronously, by completing an instruction request form. Please submit this form at least two weeks before your requested session.
Library instruction is most effective when students have a research project at the time of the instruction, so preference will be given to requests that have library-related assignments. Course instructors are also expected to accompany their class in the instruction session.
