CLC Library Instruction: Home

 

 

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.

Low Commitment, High Impact

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.

 
First, choose a selection of videos for your students to watch. View in class together or assign to watch at home, your choice. We have a full suite of videos to choose from. Want a video made that you don't see in the list? Contact us!

To link to a video in your course materials copy/paste the video title into materials (in most cases the URL should come along with your copy/paste command). Alternatively, click through to a video's page and then copy the page URL from the address bar. We will have more videos coming soon!
Your students have watched your selected videos and now they're ready to work! We'll come to your class for a work session where students can get started on their research, ask questions, and benefit from the extra guidance of a research expert. Librarians work directly with students to provide advice on the best research path for their specific topics.

 

Schedule Your Work Session

 

No time for a work session? Had a work session but looking for more? One-on-one research appointments provide your students with personalized research time with a librarian. Appointments available at all campuses and online. Day and evening hours available. Using appointments for a class? Let us know!

 

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):

High Commitment, Higher Impact

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.

Librarians are available to collaborate at all campus locations. Call us to get started!
