The Library is again offering on-campus instruction weekdays and evenings. (Saturday instruction may be available but does require at least 2 weeks notice.)
Visits typically range from 50-75 minutes (more or less time is also possible) and usually take place in our instructional labs in F Building.
If you would like to request face-to-face instruction, please fill out our Instructional Request Form.
Our primary online instruction offering is our Embedded Librarian Program. Think of it as a Personal Librarian for your course!

Librarians can provide as much or as little support as you need, but some examples of how we have helped past classes include:
Offerings can be combined with the other instructional options on this page, or they can be designed specifically for your course.
If you would like to request an Embedded Librarian, fill out our Instructional Request Form online.
If you would like to discuss whether an Embedded Librarian might meet your needs, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For classes that have synchronous online meetings, a Harper librarian can prepare a "live" presentation. Presentations can be analogous to a traditional, in-person library instruction and cover a wide variety of tools and skills, or they can be shorter and more targeted to one or two skills or tools.
We can even stop by briefly to introduce ourselves and invite students to contact us! Sessions can also be recorded to post in your course site.
If you would like a synchronous online session, fill out our Instructional Request Form online.
Library faculty can address a wide variety of topics relating to research and information literacy when working with your class online or on-campus. The following list is a sample; we are always happy to discuss other options if you can tell us more about your course and assignment. Email us to start the conversation!
