Click here to schedule an instruction session.

Librarians can visit your class to teach students how to research and find sources for class assignments. The length and content of instructional sessions is tailored to your needs. Topics may include:

  • overview of library resources and website
  • developing a research topic
  • database search techniques
  • resources for citing sources (Noodletools)
  • how to determine if a source is trustworthy
  • subject specific research

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.

Let's collaborate! We're happy to support and collaborate with faculty on assignments and class projects.

Here are ways librarians can help...

  • Find articles and readings for assignments
  • Create custom online research guides for your class or assignments
  • Create videos on research, citation, and more. 
  • Embed research guides within IvyLearn
  • Use the library space for class time or student projects.

What are Library Guides?

Library Guides are online research guides focusing on a specific subject area, course, or assignment. These pages highlight library resources that help your students complete class assignments. We call these pages LibGuides. We have ready to use LibGuides for various courses and subjects and a series of how-to guides for research-related topics. 

Contact us to request a LibGuide for your specific course, class assignment, or subject area.

 

Embed Library Guides into IvyLearn (Canvas)

You can embed any library guide into IvyLearn (Canvas) in a variety of ways: as an entire Libguide, a single page or even a specific content box. Guides can be embedded in 

  • Rich Text Editor (Announcements, Discussions, Syllabus, Quizzes, etc.)
  • Assignment
  • Module

Follow these steps to add a library guide to your IvyLearn course.

Credo Instruct is an interactive tutorial on the research process. This tutorial can be embedded within your existing IvyLearn class content.
