Library Instructions and Tours

User instruction is provided by the library staff at the request of any member of the faculty. General tours or specific research problems can be addressed during a library instruction program. The library staff welcomes the opportunity to address a class before major library research is assigned.

As students declare majors, it is desirable for them to be made aware of the indexes and specialized tools available in their chosen specialty. Faculty members should ask the library staff to provide instruction.

Telephone at least a week in advance to arrange a tour or instructional program. The Associate Director (ext. 1237) does the majority of the Library Instruction classes. The Associate Director can also arrange specialized tours in most fields with your Liaison librarian.

The library staff will be happy to work with faculty members in developing written library guides on needed topics. Librarians are available daily to help individuals who need specialized research assistance.
