Library Instruction & Services

Your librarians offer a variety resources, services, and programs to enhance your curriculum, assist you in your classroom teaching, and to support your students. 

What we offer:

Instruction: Librarian-led instruction, embedded into your research projects, tailored to meet your students' needs.

LibGuides: Request a research guide on a selected topic or to support a research project.

Bring your class to the Library: Reserve the Library for part of your class, an entire period or for a series of classes and take advantage of our beautiful new flexible learning space. A Librarian can be available to help your students.

Reserves: Put library materials on reserve so that your entire class has access to them in the Library or on a book cart delivered to your classroom.

Request Library purchases: Suggest resources to add to our collection. We welcome your input! 

What we need from you:

  • Advance notice (as much as possible!) for instruction sessions and LibGuide creation. 
  • Include your librarian in the planning process: share the resources, assignments and project instructions you plan to provide to your students.
