Please provide details about topics that students will be working on, as well as assignment requirements (e.g. paper vs. presentation, length, peer-reviewed journal articles, citation style, etc.):

You will receive a confirmation by e-mail within 3 business days of submitting your request. Please wait for phone or email confirmation before announcing this session to your class.

The most effective instruction is tied to a specific assignment, and takes place at the point when students have selected at least a preliminary topic and completed some initial searching - they are more likely to have questions about research and to understand the purpose of the library instruction.

Instructors are encouraged to attend each course-related instruction session. Your presence motivates the students to become more engaged in the learning experience, and encourages a supportive and collaborative teaching environment. Should questions arise, your presence at these sessions provides an invaluable opportunity for students to receive clarification and direction in conducting their research.
