Librarians are available to instruct students on how to find, use, and evaluate print and electronic information sources. In order to schedule use of the Library Instruction Lab and/or to schedule a session with a librarian, instructors should go to the RCC Library Events page and reserve the room under “Room Bookings” on the upper right side of the page. Faculty should email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with requests for librarian instruction a minimum of two weeks prior to the anticipated workshop date.
Library Orientations: General library orientations provide a short summary of the library’s resources. Students will learn about the library’s online catalog of in-house, printed materials, as well as be given a brief overview of the multitude of subscription databases. In addition, they will be given a quick tour of the library’s website and all of the various resources available online.
Custom Library Instruction: Schedule a custom library instruction class that introduces library resources and information literacy concepts tailored specifically for your course and/or the needs of a specific group of students. Classes typically range from 45 minutes to 1-hour and prove especially effective when arranged to coincide with a research assignment.
