Instructional Support for Research Skills

Librarians from Sheridan Library provide customized instructional support for teaching students the skills they need to find, evaluate, analyze, & integrate information sources appropriately and ethically within a variety of contexts.

While campuses are closed, all instructional support services offered by faculty librarians is offered virtually. Please contact your librarian for customized solutions for your class.

What we Offer

Your Liaison Librarian can help design and align the following tools to information literacy standards:

Ask your Librarian about adding ready-made content to your SLATE course!

Workshops led by library staff are generally 30-90 min. in length and may be offered online or in-class.

We ask that instructors complete the following, at least one week before the workshop:

  • Identify a specific assignment that the workshop supports.
  • Ensure students have already been introduced to the assignment.
  • Provide clear content expectations to the librarian. See Research Skills Topics.
  • Inform the librarian of any technical or accessibility considerations in your classroom.

Personalized consultations provide targeted support for individual and group assignments. Sessions are generally 15-30 min. in length. Consultations are best suited for:

  • Upper-level undergraduate students
  • Capstone projects
  • Post-graduate certificate research

Due to time constraints, consultations are provided at the librarian's discretion. Ask your librarian if your course assignment qualifies.
