Library Instruction Department: Promoting Library Instruction

Opportunities for promoting instruction

Liaison Librarians can identify opportunities for Instruction by interaction with faculty.

Here are a few examples:

Course-Integrated Instruction: Review the semester course offerings list to determine which classes might afford instruction opportunities, i.e. those classes that require a research component. The liaison librarian contacts the faculty member(s) teaching these courses, to ascertain if an instruction component would be appropriate, and guides the faculty through the process of scheduling a library instruction session.

Orientations: Contact your assigned Liaison areas, and determine if new faculty orientations or receptions are being held at the beginning of semesters at which library resources and services can be presented.

Department meetings:  Consider contacting your Liaison areas mid-semester about visiting one of their department meetings. Use this opportunity as a with faculty to see how the semester is going, whether any issues have come up that the library can help.
