Library Instruction at MVCC Libraries
The Libraries offer instruction sessions to students in order to support the educational mission and curricular needs of the College. The librarians facilitate students' academic success by teaching research skills and increasing student awareness of library resources, thus helping students to become information literate. Classes range from a basic orientation, which includes an introduction to library resources and services as well as a tour of the library, to a focused session directed at an assigned research project in which the teaching librarian demonstrates resources and search strategies relevant to the assignment. Faculty members are welcome to fill out the form below to request a class session. In order for us to best prepare for your class, please request classes at least five business days in advance.
