Library Instruction

Librarians provide assignment-based library instruction requested by faculty for their students. Instruction is available for all LCC courses at the Library, located in the TLC Building.

An instruction session may include:

  • library tour
  • library mobile scavenger hunt
  • research databases
  • library catalog
  • internet resources
  • search strategies
  • evaluating sources
  • other topics requested by faculty

Library Sessions Are Assignment Based

  • Faculty should coordinate a library session with a specific assignment.
  • Submit a copy or a description of the assignment with the request. 
  • Librarians are available to collaborate with instructors in designing an assignment.

Scheduling a Session

  • Schedule your session at a time in the semester when information is most helpful for your students.
  • Allow one to two hours for hands-on, exercises, group work, reflection, or work on the research assignment.
  • Instructors are required to be present during the session or arrange for a faculty substitute.
