Library instruction sessions are defined as distinct periods of time spent by librarians teaching students, faculty, staff, and/or community members library, research, and information literacy-related skills and concepts within the context of a course, degree, or program outside of the library. Library instruction sessions are delivered through F2F, embedded, and/or online methods.
Information literacy-related instructional material is both created and curated by CCC librarians. A complete list of online tutorials and educational material created by CCC Library is available at libguides.clackamas.edu/tutorials.
Additional instructional material includes CCC Library’s primary teaching tool: our website. The purpose of CCC Library’s website is threefold: to support members of the CCC community in their learning; to empower library users by providing intuitive, accessible, and free access to academic content, resources, and expertise; and, to educate library users about using CCC Library. CCC Library’s website is faculty-driven, created and maintained using LibGuides, and comprises webpages with different purposes:
Faculty members can request librarians create Course, Topic, or Subject guides (as a whole, we refer to these as "Research Guides"). Creation of these guides is a very collaborative process - please allow at least 4 weeks for requests to be met. Learn more about Course, Topic, and Subject guides, and use the Instruction Request Form to get started!
1. Submit your library instruction session request using CCC Library’s Instruction Request Form.
2. Include information in the required fields on the Instruction Request Form. This information helps the librarian plan for and customize each instruction session.
3. After you submit your library instruction session request, you will immediately receive an email from Google Forms confirming you submitted a request. That email is not confirmation that your library instruction session has been scheduled.
4. Library instruction session confirmation: You can expect to hear back from the CCC librarian who will teach your instruction session within 3 business days during the academic year.
