In-class Library Instruction Session
Contact a librarian to develop an in-class session in collaboration with you. Submit requests, using our online request form, at least 2 weeks in advance for adequate planning.
Customized Online Course Guide
Request a course-specific research guide with appropriate resources and instruction for a research assignment. A list of example course research guides can be found on this page.
Librarians are available to meet with individuals or small groups of students by appointment. This can be done in person, or via WebEX (the college's video conferencing and screen sharing tool).
Request tutorials to help enhance students’ understanding of various research-related topics or browse a list of tutorials that are ready to embed in Blackboard. Tutorials may either complement in-class instruction or can be viewed on their own.
Collaborative Research Assignment Planning
Work with your subject librarian to create effective assignments and assessments that enhance students’ information literacy skills. Find ideas for alternate research assignments or for solving student research problems.
