When to Schedule your Instruction Session

Instruction sessions are always more effective when in context to a particular assignment or course activity. A good rule of thumb is to schedule your class 2 to 4 weeks before your assignment is due.

Be sure to hand out your assignment to your students before your instruction session.

What to do before your session

Schedule your class: Always be sure to set up an instruction session with the campus contact listed above before you bring your class to the library. Space is limited; we suggest you make arrangements with us before the semester begins or during its first week.

Give us your Syllabus or Assignment: This information will help us tailor our instruction to your class.

Contact your Instructor: Please feel free to contact your course's library instructor before your class's session with any questions, concerns or special requests. We are here to support you!
