February 22 to April 27
Dimond Library, Studio 235

Wednesday 4:00 to 6:00 p.m.

Drop-in sessions help first-year students learn how to use the library's resources to conduct research for their papers and projects. It is recommended that students bring a laptop and their research topic to the session. No appointment necessary.

Library Instruction Classes

Course-integrated, hands-on library instruction classes that support students in locating information and developing skills in information literacy, research skills, and critical thinking are available on request.

Instruction may take place over one or more class periods and may meet in Dimond Library’s Gwynne Daggett Instruction Room (Dimond 421), Studio 235, or in a campus classroom.

To schedule or get more information:

Note: Please have alternate dates in mind and make requests as early as possible to allow for librarian scheduling and class preparation. Instruction session availability can fill up quickly, particularly during certain weeks of the semester.

Individual consultations are also available in support of scholarship at all levels. Please contact the appropriate subject librarian to make an appointment.

Research Guides

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.
