Instruction at MLibrary

Instruction and Workshops

The University Library has a variety of instructional offerings whether you are looking for instruction for yourself, a group, or a class you teach.  Library instructors teach students about using library resources, scholarly research process, academic integrity, and a multitude of technology tools. The Library offers several instructional options:

In-Class Instruction - Library instruction sessions might focus on a particular resource, or a course assignment assignment. Whether you are an instructor, student, or staff, librarians are available to work with you and/or your group.  Request a session.

Self-Guided Instruction - The Library Research Skills Challenge lets students explore the library’s online resources and will help them find, evaluate, and use the best information for their academic work. This module can replace in-person instruction or can be completed before an in-person classroom session. UM Librarians can customize the module for the needs of your course. To request this module please contact us at 

Open workshops - Open workshops are available to UM faculty, staff, and students.  They are free and are offered regularly throughout the year. Registration is usually required.

University Courses on library research - The Library offers several for-credit courses through LSA.  These courses are taught by librarians and include online research practice, group discussions, and more, designed to maximize your research activities in other courses.
