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 a week before the date requested.
PDFs of assigned readings can be made available to your students in accordance with Fair Use guidelines.
Learn more about Fair Use and find a checklist here. Once you have determined that the reading(s) you would like to scan meet Fair Use, you can upload materials yourself or you can complete this form to have the library scan a portion of a reserve item for you. The library will email you the scanned material within one week. You can then upload the PDF to your course's BrightSpace page for student access.
