Library Instructional Services 

The library offers a wide variety of instructional services to support classroom teaching and student success. These services include credit-bearing courses like LIB 100: Critical Approaches to Information Research and the following Workshops:

  • Intro to the Library
  • Searching Library Catalogs
  • Evaluating Sources
  • Citing Sources MLA Style, 8th edition
  • Using Information Ethically
  • The Research Process
  • Using Library Databases
  • Credible Source Types


Besides the workshop program, there may be other library instruction components that could benefit your students. Please contact your division's library liaison to discuss options such as:

  • Given the robust library workshop program, library orientations may be requested for only those classes with a specific assignment that is more in-depth or requires more specialized searching or resources. In these situations, the library liaison can collaborate with the faculty member on a CampusGuide for the specific class assignment. These orientations are most appropriate for ENGL101 classes or above. If you would like to request an orientation, we recommend doing so before the eighth week of classes or at the beginning of the semester so that the library liaison may have as much time as possible to plan for the orientation. There is a minimum turnaround time of 2-weeks for such a request. 

  • Sessions integrated into your course
     Repetition of topics like research skills, critical thinking and evaluation, and documentation of sources help to reinforce these newly acquired skills.

  • Development of library research guides around a particular assignment, as well as training on developing and customizing your own guides.
