Library Instruction Classes
Course-integrated, hands-on classes that support students in developing skills in information literacy, research skills, and critical thinking are available upon request.
To schedule or to get more information:
- contact your department’s Subject Librarian.
- contact the Engineering and Physical Sciences Librarian for instruction in the Branch Libraries.
- fill out the Request Library Instruction form
- or Ask a Librarian for general inquiries.
Instruction may take place over one or more class periods and may meet in Dimond Library’s Instruction Room (Dimond 421), Dimond's Studio 235, in any of the Branch libraries, or in a campus classroom.
Note: Please make instruction requests as early in the semester as possible, but at least one week in advance, to allow for librarian scheduling and class preparation. Instruction session availability can fill up quickly, particularly during certain weeks of the semester.
One-on-One Research Consultations
Make an appointment with a subject librarian to support course and assignment development, research and resource assistance, and scholarship at all levels. Please contact a librarian in any of the following subject areas to schedule an appointment.
The Research Center desk, on Level 3 (Main Floor) in Dimond Library, is regularly staffed for answering general questions.
Online research guides, created in collaboration between faculty members and librarians, collect a variety of subject- or assignment-specific resources in one place.
Guides may be customized to include how to use the library to conduct research, as well as links to discipline-specific databases and websites, multimedia tutorials, citation help, and other support tools.
