Instruction can be a presentation, group discussion, team teaching, and/or practice exercises. We are available for in-person teaching in classrooms, or our Library Presentation room, and online through Zoom.
We can also schedule a Library Lab Session if your course includes assignments where students research topics or cite sources during class time. These sessions would allow librarians to provide point-of-need assistance and easy access to Library resources.
