Library Instruction Request Form
Library Instruction Guidelines

The instructor or his/her designee should be present at all times during the instruction.

The role of the librarian is to direct students to the appropriate catalogs, web pages, and databases for their research and to provide instructions on proper searching techniques.

The content and pace of each individual session is governed by the librarian and based on input that is requested of the faculty member on the Library Instruction request form.

It is not the responsibility of the librarian to monitor student participation in the lesson.

Instructors, not librarians, are the authorities on the actual writing of any assignment, including having the final say over what books and articles are the most appropriate for that assignment, how to write thesis statements, how to prepare proper documentation, including the works cited page, how to proofread a paper, etc.

All positive and negative feedback about the quality of the library instruction should be brought directly to the attention of the Library Director.
