Library Instruction

Kelsey Sletten can meet with your class to show your students how to efficiently and effectively find the information they need. The duration, location, and content of each session depends on your specific needs. Here are some examples:

  • A general 30-minute session. This is ideal for students working on a paper or project. Kelsey will meet your students in a computer lab and cover the Library's resources and services, including how to use our catalog and databases to find accurate, relevant information and cite sources. Students will be given time to practice using these resources on their own and ask any questions that come up.
  • A 10- to 20-minute session on a specific topic or resource. This is ideal for students who have already had a general library session, or have some past experience in academic research and using professional sources of information. Kelsey will join your class online or in person and skip the general stuff, saving time. Examples:
    • The best resources for students writing an argument or persuasive paper
    • General information, resources, and guidance on how to create in-text citations
    • Where to find trustworthy and reputable sources of information in the medical/science field
    • Finding and evaluating sources in trades and technology, through the use of Trade Journals
    • Paraphrasing a source vs retrieving direct quotes, and how to properly credit the author(s)
