For your students

In addition to classroom instruction, the Library offers many online tutorials and research guides to help students develop information fluency skills. Feel free to link to them in your class materials or embed them in your Moodle courses. 

Librarians are also available to consult with students one-on-one. Please encourage students to make an appointment.

These short videos can be linked or embedded in your Moodle or Brightspace course.
