Librarians are resources for you. Below is a menu of information literacy skills a librarian can address in an instruction class or Course Guide. Librarians can also consult with you to bring these skills into your research lessons and assignments.
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.
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.
To request a custom guide, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why should I request library instruction for my class? If you have an assignment that requires your students to develop a research topic, search for information, evaluate information, or cite sources, librarians can support that work! Recognizing bias, searching more efficiently in Google, developing or narrowing the focus of a topic, identifying "fake news," knowing when you've done "enough" research - anything related to information that you want to fold into your course - CCC librarians can teach.
Is library instruction only face-to-face? Nope! We are flexible and strive to meet your needs. Learn more about our F2F, embedded, and online instruction options.
What is the difference between an "orientation" and an "instruction session"?
Who is my librarian liaison - aka, who should I contact to teach a class? In the context of instruction services, CCC Library employs a fluid model of librarian liaisons. This fluidity means that there is no one librarian assigned to each CCC program - and it means any and all of us can assist you! Please request instruction using CCC Library’s Instruction Request Form.
