Instruction Services

Collaborate with librarians to improve your or your students' research and information skills. The Libraries provides a wide range of instructional services to help you and your students. We offer instruction sessions to help students learn to use library resources. Sessions introduce students to library databases, library research, source evaluation, as well as in-depth instruction for advanced users. For more, see the library instruction mission statement.
