We will be happy to come to your classroom (or a lab if you can arrange for one) to show your students what resources are available to them through the library - how to access, evaluate and utilize those resources, and how to get help should they need it.
Allowing students to actually try searches in a lab setting is more effective than just demonstrating to a class. We can also work with you to develop exercises and assignments to improve student research skills.
Timing is an important component of effective library instruction. If scheduled too early, students will not retain what they have learned. If scheduled too late, students will not have acquired the skills they need to successfully complete an assignment. A helpful rule of thumb may be to schedule a library session two weeks to 10 days before a specific assignment is due. Librarians request at least 2 weeks' notice to plan an effective and engaging library instruction session.
