Committed to providing instruction that best suits our learners, CLC library faculty partner with classroom faculty to offer expertise in the use and evaluation of information in an ever-changing world. Whether you're looking to collaborate over the course of a semester or wanting your students to work one-on-one with a library faculty member, we've got options.
A great option for the instructor who's short on time but still values cross-faculty collaboration. Start with step 1 below then continue with step 2 or step 3 or a combination of the two.
|Finding a Topic||Using Library OneSearch (library catalog)||Finding/Selecting Databases||360 Link and Interlibrary Loan|

Sample syllabus/assignment language:
Option 1: Making an appointment with a librarian is simple. If you're ready to book, make your research appointment now. If it's your first time making an appointment or if you have questions about the process, use the tutorial on booking an appointment.
Option 2: To make an appointment with a librarian, start at the library's homepage, scroll down and, under Services, select "schedule a research appointment."
Option 3 (direct links):
Take your collaboration efforts one step further by working with an embedded librarian. Librarians work over multiple weeks (or the semester) with classroom instructors to formulate assignments, monitor discussion boards, create course/discipline-specific instruction, and more.
