Request for Library Instruction

Also known as Information Literacy or Bibliographic Instruction, our librarians offer general and course-related or subject specific library instruction sessions for classes. These sessions include:

  • Learning Commons Orientations
  • Electronic Database Orientations
  • Specialized Information Sessions

These 25 – 45 minute sessions are designed to help students understand how to find and use information with the library's electronic and print resources as well as on the Internet. Instruction can be tailored to the specific needs of the students, based on course requirements and assignments.

Are students working on a specific assignment?  If so, what topics are they researching?  What would you like the librarian to know about the assignment prior to the session? 

Our orientations include information on the following:  the library catalog and website, off-campus access, AskAcademic, Academic Search Premier, ProQuest, CQ Researcher, Facts on File, NewsBank, and NetLibrary.   Are there any other databases or topics you would like us to cover?  Description of our databases.

Please give us a minimum of three days notice; longer notice is better. You will receive an email confirming your session.  Sessions generally are held in the Learning Commons or in the instructor's classroom and last for 45 minutes, or as requested.  On the Greeley Campus it is often necessary to hold evening sessions in the library due to staffing concerns.

We ask that the instructor be present during the session.
