+Through a hands-on, interactive classroom session, the RIS Librarian can help students learn about the research process, library services, tools, and information concepts that will help them to initiate a research assignment. 

+Library instruction sessions are supplemented by web-based Course Research Guides that students can refer back to throughout the semester.
