Teaching with the Libraries

The University Libraries instruction sessions will be predominately virtual. Our librarians, curators, and instructional staff have increased course support through online class guides, tutorials, and asynchronous instruction methods.

Library Instruction

Schedule a virtual library instruction session, using our Library Instruction Request form, or contact your Subject Librarian

The Libraries also have a variety of tutorials and research & class guides that you can embed in your class.

Class Visits and Tours of Library Buildings

  • The Libraries are not offering in-library classes or workshops. All classes must meet in the university-designated classroom.
  • Campus tours involving a stop at the Libraries will be asked to conduct their sessions outside the buildings.
