Types of Library Instruction Sessions:
One-Shot - This is the most popular type of session. You, the instructor, request a date and time for a librarian to meet with your class for approximately 30 minutes. The goal of these sessions is to impress upon our students the value of information and how to get reliable authoritative information using the library resources. We can reserve a computer lab in the library for your session in order to have a hands-on session or a we can come to your classroom. See the student learning outcomes for this session.
One-Shot with a Tour - This is the same type of session as the above except the class is taken through the actual library (15 minutes) before the session. See the student learning outcomes for this session.
Research Session - This type of session is geared to upper level classes or classes that are introducing research methods. The goal is to take students a step further into research by focusing on more subject specific databases and peer-reviewed journals however the value of authority and reliability of library resources is emphasized here as well.
Workshop for Students - You may request a workshop for your students to be held outside of class time. You can choose a specific skill or focus area for the workshop.
Workshop for Faculty - Get you colleagues together and we can set up a time when we call all gather in one of the computer labs or in a room in your department and you can get an update on what resources are available or training on a specific tool such as RefWorks.
Individual Sessions - Students and faculty can request a one on one appointment with a librarian. Faculty may want to suggest or require students to do this if you feel that the particular student would benefit more from such a session. The goal would be to help students develop strategies for their individual research needs. Faculty are welcome to do so as well.
