Instruction Services

Your Involvement

Your students will appreciate your being there for the library instruction session. The students need to hear from you about the assignment, the resources, and your experiences with finding and using information in the context of your course and discipline. They are likely to have questions about the assignment that only you can answer. Your attitude towards the session will greatly influence your students’ attitudes.

As much information as possible that you can give us about the assignment—syllabus, description of assignment, number and types of sources required, previous experience with this assignment, etc. –will help us with our presentation.  Send a copy of your assignment to the librarian prior to the instruction session and plan to spend some time discussing your course and assignment goals.
