Teaching Support for Faculty: Library instruction & consultations

To schedule a session, please contact your course's liaison librarian (below) with your preferred dates and learning objectives. 

We require a minimum of one week's notice for all instruction requests, with two necessary for the busiest times of the quarter. While we are always happy to work with your course, additional notice is appreciated. This allows for increased customization, interaction, and support for your students.

Ask about:

  • Synchronous Zoom lessons or orientation sessions
  • Embedding library modules or support pages in Canvas
  • Research Help hours or drop-in work sessions just for your student
  • A custom research guide for your class
