Library Instruction

Summer 2022--due to limited staffing, librarians may not be able to accommodate all instruction requests. Please submit requests as early as possible.

While many courses are still remote, librarians are available to support information literacy outcomes and provide database instruction by

  • attending Zoom sessions to demo databases and research processes
  • creating screencasts for specific classes
  • creating research handouts specific to your assignments

We will also be available for in-person instruction.

Instruction Menu

Starter session--one class session includes an introduction to library services and the search process

Research series--2-3 sessions to support the research process throughout the semester

Information literacy--all of our instruction include information literacy concepts. Stand-alone workshops on evaluating information or other concepts are also available.

We are flexible and value collaboration. Reach out with your ideas.

Library Instruction Session Guidelines

  • The best time for a library instruction session is after a research 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, and we encourage you to allow time to actively reinforce their learning through hands-on practice (searching databases, etc.).        

  • Instruction sessions must be requested at least a week before the date requested.

Open Educational Resources (OER)

OER are free and open textbook alternatives. Review resources for faculty or contact librarians (jallison13@ccc.edu or tscalzo@ccc.edu) for assistance with:

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

We welcome recommendations for book and periodical selections that support the curriculum and mission of the College.

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 (tscalzo@ccc.edu) or wwclibrary@ccc.edu with your topics and questions.
