Types of Support

Classroom Support:

A librarian will work with you to plan a custom experience for your students.  Classroom visits range from a quick 15 minute drop-by to a multi-session learning experience. Visits typically consist of both hands-on activities and a demonstration of library resources.  


Online Support: 

A librarian can be added in a Librarian role in your D2L class.

We will work with you to plan the best online information literacy support for your students- this typically includes:

  • An ask-a-librarian discussion board within your D2L module.
  • Tutorials and handouts promoted at the point-of-need for specific research assignments.

We can provide online instruction via Skype, Blackboard Collaborate, or Google Hangouts. A librarian will work with you to determine the best mode of access for your class.
