Library Instruction

Reference librarians provide library classes, workshops, and tours to instruct patrons using online and print resources, with an emphasis on active learning. The session, or series of sessions, can be tailored to cover specific subject areas, and should be scheduled one week in advance. The maximum group size for the BI Classroom is about 35 students.

To request a library instruction session, either call Reference at ext. 3214 or fill out the Library Instruction Request Form.

Check the LI Classroom Calendar for availability of times for a scheduled class, or to reserve the room for instruction.
