Library Instruction Sessions and Research Consultations

Library Instruction Sessions

Library instruction sessions are typically hour-long classes that are tailored to cover topics related to a particular course.  Sessions may be longer or shorter, depending on the materials covered and faculty needs.

Research Consultations

Research consultations are one-on-one meetings with professional librarians for extended assistance and may be requested by faculty, staff, or students.
