Instruction and Information Sessions
As a part of reference service, librarians instruct individuals on how to best identify, access, and evaluate relevant information resources. In addition to this one-on-one instruction, librarians are available to provide instruction sessions about collection resources to classes or other subject or discipline-oriented groups. Content of these sessions can range from general overviews to in-depth explorations of resources available in a particular discipline or on a specific subject. For information about this service, contact Government Information via the email link or phone number above, or stop by the reference desk between 1 and 5 daily.
