Library Course-Integrated Instruction

Course-Integrated Instruction

At a professor's request, librarians assist students in understanding and learning the library research process by giving special classes. Library faculty tailor these sessions to meet the needs of individual class assignments. Most classes involve detailed, hands-on instruction in the operation of subject-specific databases.

For other information on library services and forms, please visit our Faculty Support Services page.

Individual school-based instruction coordination is divided among the Library's College Services Liaison Librarians:

Arts & Letters Ying Xu x3-3959
Business & Economics Alan Stein x3-3963
Charter College of Education Teresa Omidsalar x3-3996
Engineering & Technology Ken Ryan x3-5168
Health & Human Services Carolyn McIntosh
Natural Sciences Ken Ryan x3-4943
Social Sciences Romelia Salinas x3-2019

Depending on the extent and depth of the Library class assignments, the College Liaison Librarians will either give the library instructional session themselves, or arrange for it to be given by the Department Liaison Librarian assigned to the subject area of the course. You may request a class taught by a librarian by using our online library instruction request form

General instruction is coordinated by the Library's College Services and Instruction Task Force leader, Alan Stein.
