Library Instruction: Scheduling Library Instruction

Scheduling Library Instruction for Your Classes

We strongly encourage you to contact us for class instruction before or near the start of the semester, as time slots fill quickly. Please be aware:

  • Schedule sessions in person at the Andersen Library Reference Desk, by phone (262) 472-1032, or email at Alternatively, contact your department's librarian liaison or any other reference and instruction librarian directly
  • Sessions are scheduled on a first-come-first-served basis
  • Advanced notice of at least one week is required for class visits
  • Details such as date, time, length, topic, etc. will be needed
  • Schedule a session for the point of need, as students who have an assignment to focus on will get the most out of library instruction
  • Requests for a specific librarian will be honored if possible
  • Class assignments and topics should be provided to the librarian beforehand so we can customize the session for your students 
  • Instruction is typically on just a few concepts, resources, and services. The Session Content tab lists information literacy Frames and Competencies we can address. Just let us know your specific needs

On the Day of Your Visit

  • The librarian will meet you and your students in the open area near the Circulation Desk and Food for Thought café unless other arrangements are made
  • Instructors are strongly encouraged to accompany students to the Library to maximize the effectiveness of the session
