Library Instruction Request

Teaching with the Libraries (Spring 2021)

The University Libraries Instruction sessions will be predominately virtual. Our librarians, curators and instructional staff are working hard to increase course support through online class guides, tutorials, and asynchronous instruction methods tailored to a specific course and assignments and we will continue to be available for scheduled online instruction sessions during a class or offer pre-recorded sessions if a virtual library visit does not work.

If virtual instruction cannot meet the learning outcomes for a course, some exceptions will be made to accommodate limited in-person library instruction. Any in-person instruction is at the shared discretion of the library and course instructor and must meet guidelines for space occupancy and social distancing. The learning outcomes for library instruction should be considered before making decisions to teach either online or face-to-face.

In accordance with campus guidelines, any in-person instruction must occur in the designated university classroom. Instructors may not bring their classes to the library spaces for class instruction or tours.
