Work with a Librarian


If you require a research assignment for your students, please consider setting up a library instruction session with one of the librarians. We can work with your students to provide the research skills to successfully complete the assignment.

To ensure the best experience for your students, we ask that you submit your request at least two weeks in advance, earlier is always better, and can ensure you get your preferred date and time. We ask that you provide us with a copy of your syllabus and the assignment to help us prepare an effective lesson plan. Please consider scheduling the library instruction when you have introduced the assignment as students will get the most benefit at that time. Both experience and the literature tell us that students benefit from information literacy instruction most when it is introduced in conjunction with a research assignment. It is important for the students to have you attend the class as well.

If you would like to set up a library information session for your class or a specific project, please contact Andria Tieman Michney, Commons Librarian for Digital Research & Education, at ex. 1252 or
