In-Person Class Library Visits Suspended

In-person class visits to the library are temporarily suspended. Please contact Kevin Prendergast at libinstruct@montclair.edu if you want to make alternative arrangements for your class to get help with library research (e.g. library research guide, Canvas module, Zoom for librarian-led instruction).

If you want to schedule librarian-led instruction over Zoom for your class, complete the “Your Classroom Library Instruction Request Form” linked below and indicate you want the session to be online (instead of providing your classroom location.)

Library Instruction

Faculty and instructors can book library instruction classes for their students, led by a professional librarian, Monday through Saturday.

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.

For more information, contact Kevin Prendergast at libinstruct@montclair.edu
