Request an Information Literacy Instruction Session

Before scheduling an Information Literacy Instruction Session, please keep some things in mind:

  •     Please give us a two week notice before your first choice session. This allows us to adequately prepare for your students.
  •     Please schedule your Information Literacy Instruction Session to that is coincides with your students' research assignment. We are most helpful at the students' point of need.
  •     Please be flexible in your schedule. We will try to honor your first choice for a session but this isn't always possible as we are scheduling your colleagues as well.
  •     We recommend using one full class time (1 hour 50 minutes or 1 hour 20 minutes depending on the class) for an Information Literacy Instruction Session. This allows your students to fully engage with new concepts and new methods.
  •     Submit your syllabus and assignment to libinstr@mail.lib.msu.edu In order to ensure maximum effectiveness for the students, we tailor our sessions to address their immediate research needs. If the students will not be working on a research assignment at the time of the scheduled library session, we strongly suggest rescheduling the session.
