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 three distinct instructional options:

Instruction sessions by request
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.

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.

In addition to these options, we offer a wealth of online learning resources.  The DYI Toolkit is a series of modules for instructors who want to introduce library research lessons to their students themselves. Additionally, the Library Tutorials are self-guided lessons available to all.
