Library Instruction Session Guidelines

  • The best time for a library instruction session is after an assignment has been assigned and students have chosen their topics. Students are more likely to be motivated to learn about research resources at the point of need.        

  • Students learn best by doing! We encourage you to allow time to actively reinforce their learning through hands-on practice.       

  • We strive to accommodate all requests. Due to limited staffing, we ask that you submit requests as early as possible--at least one week in advance.

Open Educational Resources (OER)

OER are free and open textbook alternatives. Review resources for faculty or contact Tineka Scalzo ( for assistance with:

  • Identifying potential OER
  • Using OER with a class
  • Information on authoring and sharing your own OER

Assignment Review

If you have an assignment that includes research, consider having a Wright librarian review the assignment beforehand (whether or not you are also expecting to have a librarian visit your class) in order to help scaffold learning. We are familiar with CCC subscription databases as well as outside information sources and can help you direct students toward relevant resources. Email Tineka Scalzo ( or with your topics and questions.
