Charles E. Young Research Library

Instruction for Classes

The Library offers instruction on library research strategies, specialized reference tools, the effective use of online catalogs and article databases, and other methods for accessing the collections and retrieving and evaluating information. When tailored to course content, library instruction can help enhance the scope and quality of sources students use for assignments.

Librarians are available to give class presentations, which can include demonstrations of online catalogs and hands-on learning of databases to access scholarly articles. Librarians can create Web pages with links to key databases, bibliographies of relevant reference sources, and other instructional materials for individual courses. (See some examples.) Librarians are also available for individual and small group consultations outside of class time.

Contact one of the subject specialist librarians at any time during the quarter (the earlier the better) to discuss and set up instructional sessions.
