Instruction Support

Library Instruction

Reference librarians are available to provide library instruction sessions, either in the RIC classrooms (101 or 120) or your own. We're happy to collaborate with you in teaching your students the library research and information literacy skills that they need to succeed academically and in life.

Instruction can range from an introductory level an advanced level, including (but not limited to):

  • Navigating the library website
  • How to search the library catalog
  • Requesting items through Interlibrary Loan
  • Selecting and searching article databases
  • Advanced database search strategies (general or geared toward specific databases)
  • Google searching (including advanced Google search techniques)
  • Using resources such as Zotero (a free citation management software)
