We need a minimum of two weeks for booking. To ensure we can accommodate your preferred date and time, please book AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE. We may need more time if you are at the Exchange District Campus or a regional location.


Presentations can be basic to specialized; they are typically customized to the needs of your particular class and can include a combination of topics. We will discuss your session in advance to ensure we meet your specific needs. Sessions tend to work best just ahead of a research-type assignment where they can use those skills. If you have an assignment, please send it to us to help us customize your presentation.

Topics covered in live library instruction sessions often include:
  • An introduction to the Library
  • Creating effective searches, keywords, and boolean syntax
  • Choosing the most effective search tools, internet versus databases
  • Searching the Library’s OneSearch discovery tool and using its specialized features
  • Searching specialized online databases
  • Evaluating sources using CRAAP or other tools
  • Answering student’s questions
