Request Instruction

Planning a course? We’ll work with you to develop customized instruction tailored to your topic area or objectives.  

Request an instruction session

Choosing an instruction topic only serves as the first part of your conversation with library staff. Together, we’ll design a session that's right for your students.

Please submit your request at least two weeks in advance of your preferred dates so we can ensure library instructor availability and prepare materials.

What we teach

Through interactive activities, directed research or lab time, and other techniques, we teach a wide range of sessions. 

Our library instructors cover topics such as:

  • Finding, using, critically evaluating, and citing sources
  • Accessing and using special library collections 
  • Creating posters, presentations, websites, data visualizations, zines, and more
  • Using graphics, audiovisual, and citation management tools

See a full list of tools and topics we teach. Instruction can take place in a single session or over multiple meetings.

Whether you’d like to schedule an in-person, hybrid, or online session for your students, get help designing an assignment or a course, or more, we’re here to help you meet your goals.
