Library Instruction FAQs

How can I help ensure a successful library class?

  • Make sure students understand their research assignment before coming to the session.
  • Work with the librarian to prepare the session.
  • Actively participate in the session (i.e. interject information, ask questions, encourage students to ask questions).

Where are the classes held?

  • Hands-on classes

    Hands-on classes for groups of 25 and under are held in a computer lab/classroom on LL1 of Bobst Library

  • Lecture & demo classes

How far in advance should I schedule my session?

At least a week in advance. But the library instruction calendar fills up quickly. To ensure your preferred date, it’s best to request early in the semester (or even before the semester begins).

Do I need to attend the session?

Yes, your presence conveys the value you place on developing strong library research skills. Your students will pick up on this.
