Classroom Instruction Request

The library offers instruction to individual students and classes in the use of academic resources. Because instructional space in the library is limited, the reference librarian usually visits the classroom.  We believe that library instruction is more effective if students have been assigned a research project by their professor before the library class takes place. Instruction can then be tailored to needs of each class. We ask professors to schedule their classes with the reference librarian at least a week in advance. Please note that we expect the professor to be present at the class during instruction.

Librarian Contacts by Academic Department/Program

Each department and program is paired with a liaison librarian who acts as a first point of contact for faculty, teaches library instruction sessions, and oversees collection development in relevant subject areas.
