Information Literacy Instruction/Embedded Librarians
- Information literacy sessions that are specially tailored to fit the needs of your students. To achieve this, we recommend that sessions correspond with a course assignment to provide students with context for the skills to which they will be introduced. Please plan ahead! We have a menu of the topics and resources we can include in a session that can help you choose what areas you would like us to cover. Requesting sessions at least one week in advance (by phone or email) provides the librarian with time to prepare and also allows for greater flexibility in scheduling.
- Our Embedded Librarian Program involves placing a librarian (with links to databases, tutorials, and other course-specific resources) in your Canvas course to assist your students at their point of need. We work with face-to-face, web-based, Greentree and VOALC courses and are willing to explore and create the best fit for your course. See our embedded librarian introduction videos and some past class pages for a glimpse of the program in action.
- Video Tutorials that students can use to review or learn research concepts and skills or the specifics of searching databases or requesting books from the library catalog. We also have links to a variety of Research Guides & Tools that we use with classes, and a quick list of resources to help students learn the ABCs of Library Research.
