Library instruction is foundational to academic success.
At Lansdowne, classes are usually held in the Library Learning Lab LLC 136.
At Interurban, instructors must request computer lab space through Room Bookings (please allow yourself time for this process). Librarians are happy to provide guidance about which rooms work best for your class size and make-up.
Sessions should be scheduled at least 2 weeks in advance.
These self-paced information literacy modules include videos, tutorials and self-assessment quizzes on a variety of topics including research strategies, web evaluation and citation.
