Students who are assigned projects requiring library research often lack basic library skills or are overwhelmed by the variety of information resources available in Trexler Library.
The Library Instruction Program at DeSales University is designed to teach students how to use the resources available here while developing skills for lifelong Information Literacy.
The library offers instruction sessions tailored to the needs of your students and your assignments. Instruction librarians will introduce students to the resources and search strategies that are most appropriate for their assignments, topics and level of expertise.
Where, When and Who?
All teaching faculty are invited to take advantage of our library instruction program and schedule library sessions for their classes. Sessions may be scheduled during regular class time (evening as well as day) in-person or virtually through Zoom.
What can be covered?
We strongly believe that course-related instruction connected with a real academic need is more effective than stand-alone or disconnected tours and library orientations. In our teaching sessions we emphasize concepts and strategies as a means to achieve our mission of educating information literate individuals.
Call us to discuss your classes' specific needs.
Tips for a Successful Session
We can also provide Panopto recordings to highlight resources/library services appropriate for your classes and your assignments.
