Course Integrated Instruction

Requesting a Session

To schedule a session, use our Library Instruction Request Form.

Requests for instruction should be made at least two weeks in advance of the session. This allows time for the librarian to review relevant course materials, create a class plan, and review the class content and format with you.

Session Basics

The libraries' instruction program aligns with Information Literacy standards established by The Middle States Commission on Higher Education and The Association of College and Research Libraries.  Instruction librarians at Gelman and Eckles libraries are available to collaborate with faculty to conduct a class session based on the research needs of your students. A successful session will:

  • Link to a specific assignment at the time your students begin their research, which increases student motivation and learning.
  • Include the faculty member, whose presence stresses the importance of research instruction and enriches student learning.
  • Result out of a collaboration between the faculty member and the librarian.

Instruction librarians are also available to visit your course to participate in discussion about student research, as well as to consult with a faculty member on research assignments in order to clarify possible information sources or potential roadblocks.
