Library Instruction Classes
Librarians teach various levels of classes which incorporate locating, evaluating and using information. We offer:
- An orientation or introduction to the library geared to the novice library user
- Research Strategies I the basic "how to" class on using the online catalog and online databases to locate information; (this class can be tailored to a specific subject class upon your request)
- Plagiarism (what it is and how to avoid it) and overviews of Citation Styles (such as MLA and APA) which encourage using information appropriately
- Research Strategies II which includes the steps of the research process
- Web Evaluation which is designed to increase awareness of how to evaluate information found online
- Classes designed upon request to fit the needs of specific class assignment
O'Kelly Library reserves Room 318W, a computer lab and Room 127 which can be set up with laptops for our classes. We can also travel to your off-campus site or come to your classroom. Access to a computer lab will enhance the learning experience of your students.
Our classes are developed using a variety of teaching techniques, especially active learning and demonstration. We feel students learn best with "hands on" experiences, practice exercises and questioning.
