Library Instruction

Library instruction is available for any class or subject. Misenheimer students receive a general library orientation, including basic database instruction, in their freshman seminar, graduate students receive it in a designated class in each program, and Adult Studies students receive instruction during orientation. Details about the above, as well as the mission and objectives of our program, are available in our full Information Literacy Policy. Instruction for distance education and online classes is available both in-person and via live, interactive technology. Possibilities for library instruction beyond the basic sessions include:

Subject-specific Instruction - i.e. literary criticism research, history research, etc. This is available for any subject, broad or narrow. It covers available reference sources, periodicals & indexes, research databases, and any other available resources pertaining to the subject.

Assignment-specific Instruction - If you are giving your students an assignment involving the library, we will be glad to instruct the class as a group on the resources they will need for the assignment. This includes in-depth database instruction if desired.

Design-Your-Own Instruction - We are flexible and happy to accommodate your library instruction needs - we will tailor all library instruction to your specific requests.
