Library Instruction & Services

Basic Class

Library tour and quick introduction to library Web site as well as library services and resources. For groups with no assignments or low information literacy levels.

Research Class

Class covers searching the Library Catalog, Databases and other electronic resources. Focuses on search strategies to find relevant and reliable sources of information. Overview of citation styles. Best for classes working on an assignment or a paper.

Career Readiness Class

Introduction to library services and resources with a focus on careers. Stresses how to easily find information on job opportunities, interviewing techniques, resumes, schools and majors, job markets, and more.

LibGuides are research guides that outline specific resources for subjects, courses and homework.

Course reserves are a collection of textbooks, study guides and other materials that are required by some professors for their classes. These items are placed in a controlled access area and given short loan periods to make them accessible to as many students as possible.

Check course reserves.

You must present your ID card and know the course number and/or instructor’s name to borrow reserve items.

The loan period for reserve materials is usually two hours (in-library use only) unless the instructor has specified otherwise.
