F2F Library Instruction & More
Library Instruction Sessions Professors bring their students to Blackwell Library for face to face instruction with a Research & Instructional Services Librarian.
+Librarians customize instruction to directly address research assignment information needs.
+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.
