Librarian teaching a class

Instruction and Workshops

Sprague Library

In-Person and Online

If you are the course instructor and want to schedule librarian-led instruction for your class, complete the form below. We will work with your class over Zoom, in the library (room 203), or in your classroom.

Library Instruction

Faculty and instructors can book library instruction classes for their students, led by an academic librarian.

Each session is designed around the class and course assignments. We teach classes such as:

  • general introduction to research
  • subject-specific research instruction (e.g. education, biology, business, law)
  • specialized classes on upper level and graduate level research
  • workshops on citation searching and management (e.g. Mendeley, Google Scholar)

Instructors are required to be present and participate in these sessions.
