If you wish to book course-integrated library instruction, we recommend the following:
Link the session to a class research assignment. This increases the relevance of the session for students and allows them to put new skills into practice immediately, for maximum retention of searching concepts
When possible, consult with a librarian when designing the research assignment. They can keep you up to date on new tools and/or changes in the Library that may have an impact on your assignment
Schedule the session during class time. Sessions arranged outside of class time tend to be poorly attended. Also, when booking a session with a librarian, a minimum of two weeks notice is required, particularly during busy times in the fall term
- Send the librarian who will teach your class your final draft of the assignment and a copy of your syllabus. We design each session individually and the more we know about your course content, the more we can tailor the session to your needs.
