Instruction Program

The purpose of library instruction is to enhance learning and integrate information literacy into the curriculum. Teaching librarians help students learn to search, read, think, and contribute in an engaged and iterative research process. Instruction services go beyond meeting with students to demonstrate database searches, to include several options.

  • Direct in-person instruction to address any combination of our learning outcomes.
  • Online, web-based tools targeted to your particular discipline or course
  • Collaboration with instructors to design research assignments and class activities that make the best use of Atkins Library resources and ensure student success
  • Faculty workshops to provide ideas for instructors to incorporate research skills throughout a course
Contact Stephanie Otis or your subject librarian for information about these opportunities.
