Please feel free to reach out to any of the library staff at the Southern Wake Campus if there is anything we can do to help your students meet your research goals in this new online environment.
- Online instruction sessions via Teams or another platform that you and your students are using.
- One on one research assistance sessions to your students that may be having trouble finding the right resources for your assignment.
- Research guides tailored to your coursework or research assignment.
- Embedded librarians in your Blackboard course to help students access library resources and answer library related questions.
Do your students have research to do but don't know where to start? The library can help!
We offer several different types of library instruction:
- Library Orientation. We can give your students a basic introduction to library resources or services. This is great for students who have never used the library before.
- Database Searching. If your students have research to do, we can show them how to access and search the research databases.
- Customized Instruction. We can customize our instruction to meet your class's specific needs. Just let us know what you want your students to learn, and we'll design a program just for them.
Schedule an appointment!
If you have any questions about library orientation or scheduling library instruction, please feel free to contact your Instruction Librarian, David Carter, directly.
Keep in mind research guides can be created for individual classes or specific class assignments. If you feel a research guide would help your students with their assignments, please speak with David Carter for more information.
