Library instruction, requested by faculty, is provided to aid the University community to acquire skills that promote life-long learning. Working with instructors, a session will be developed to provide students the necessary library information to succeed in the class. The library is now utilizing both Go To Webinar and Canvas Collaborate to conduct instruction webinars for online and evening classes.
How do I participate?
You don't need any special equipment, just a computer, Internet access, and the most recent version of Java installed. Prior to the webinar, you will be emailed the website address needed.

In addition to webinars, instructional classes may be delivered face-to-face, and through tutorials available at the library web site.

Library instruction, requested by faculty, is provided to aid the College community to acquire skills that promote life-long learning. Working with instructors, instruction sessions will be developed to provide students the necessary library information to succeed in the class.
Sessions should be scheduled at least one week in advance to permit the librarian to make adequate preparation for instruction such as creating handouts and/or a web-based LibGuide for the class use.
