Instruction Policies

In-person instruction is offered Monday through Friday, excluding the first week of classes and the last two weeks of classes each semester. To ensure adequate preparation time, instruction sessions should be requested no less than two weeks prior to the class date.  If you are requesting support for a specific assignment, a copy of the assignment should be provided to the librarian instructor at least one week in advance. To ensure maximum impact and engagement, instructors are asked to attend the session.

Space in library instruction facilities is limited, and librarians’ schedules fill quickly. Faculty are encouraged to schedule instruction sessions as early into the semester as possible.
