Library Services for Faculty: Library Instruction

Library Instruction

The library offers instruction sessions for any class at Methodist College, both online and in-person. Request your library instruction sessions here.

Sessions can include:

  • Library overview
  • Types of Sources
  • Information Cycle
  • Topic Selection
  • Selecting Keywords
  • Searching for resources
  • Evaluating Information
  • Using sources correctly and ethically

Other sessions can be developed to meet your class' needs. All sessions are customizable for the class's information needs. Worksheets can also be developed to assess student learning.

The preferred method of library instruction is to visit the class several times throughout the semester for short periods. For example three 20 minutes sessions instead of one 50 minute session. Instruction sessions are also best scheduled when the students are about to begin a research project. However, sessions can be scheduled at any time in the semester.

A collection of instruction tutorials are available through LibGuides or request one to be made.

Let the library know about your research assignments. Upload files here.
