Library Instruction Sessions

About Library Instruction At the TDRL

NOTE: Due to community health concerns, in-person library instruction sessions are currently not available. Please contact Samantha Godbey (samantha.godbey@unlv.edu) about options for virtual sessions.

The University Libraries offers library instruction sessions to COE courses and groups by appointment.

Library Instruction Sessions

Conducted by the Education Librarian, library instruction sessions for the College of Education can be offered at the TDRL or Lied Library.

With a focus on information literacy development, library instruction sessions can be single sessions or embedded throughout a COE course. Each session can be tailored to meet individual course needs, but popular topics include:

  • Focusing and narrowing down a research topic
  • Identifying and evaluating sources
  • Searching library databases effectively
  • Ethical use of sources, APA format
  • Training on specific resources (ERIC, Education data sources, etc.)
  • Training on specific tools or topics (e.g., RefWorks, literature reviews, systematic reviews)
