We are eager to partner with faculty members to help design course assignments, develop research guides and facilitate workshops.

Instructional Services

Tutoring, training, mentoring or coaching – however you prefer to view it, we are eager to partner with you to share what we know and help you grow through our instructional services. Our librarians have impressive credentials that include specialized graduate degrees and classroom teaching experience, which play a key role in our facilitation of learning each time we interact with you.

For Faculty

Course Assignment Design
We can assist faculty members with assignment design, and we’re happy to share handouts, too. Want another mind to join you in brainstorming ideas that go beyond the traditional research paper? We can do that. Hoping to embed library forums into an online course page? Not a problem. From librarian-led instruction to information literacy assessments, we are excited to be a part of your teaching success.

Research Guide Development
Faculty looking to incorporate gaming modules, course-specific research guides, videos, interactive tutorials or other forms of online resources can call on the library for a helping hand in this process. 

Workshops
Could you use a refresher on refining topics with reference sources? How about an overview of the ethics of information and knowledge? You’re in luck. These and a variety of other instructional workshops are available to both faculty and student organizations. 

Individualized Assistance
If one-to-one attention is what you’re looking for, we’ve got that covered as well. Individualized research consultations can help you:
  • Interpret assignments
  • Explore the viability of a topic
  • Identify where to search
  • Develop strategies for good searches
  • Learn the features of any search engine
  • Evaluate the results
  • Improve research efficiency
  • Reduce anxieties related to research
  • Cite and format bibliographies

Course-Integrated Sessions
When a librarian works with you in a class setting, you can count an environment designed with you in mind. We set you up for success through:

  • being up-to-date on the latest research on how individuals learn best
  • understanding what students at SNC typically already know and what trouble-spots professors see
  • knowing the very best search tools and techniques to make your life easier
Come ready to discuss, practice, and learn and you’ll be pleased with the process and outcomes!
