Sessions for classes

Library faculty can work with you to create a customized one-time instruction session tailored to your assignments and the learning outcomes for your class. Fill out the library instruction request form and a librarian will contact you to discuss options for your class.  

Course outcomes related to library research

Many courses have outcomes specific to library research and information literacy.  Check Course Specific Research Support for specific library instruction learning objectives aligned with course outcomes.  Each form also shows how the library research related course outcomes map to the Research Support Framework along a continuum of research skill stages from beginning to advanced.

Tutorials, handouts, and guides

We understand that not everyone can collaborate directly with a librarian.  For this reason, the library faculty has created a number of resources that you can share with your students or embed in course shells.  Visit Tutorials and Handouts to see the wide array of videos and tutorials that are available for you and your students. Don’t see what you need?  Send us a suggestion and we’ll do what we can to develop a tool for your students. 

PCC librarians have also created a set of subject-specific resource guides that you can share with your students.  These guides provide an easy way to introduce your students to the resources available for your program.  Take a moment to look for the Research Guide for your program.  Please don’t hesitate to send us a suggestion if there is something you see that would be a good addition to the guide for your area.  

Support with assignments

Librarians stay abreast of the latest research methods and are happy to help you get to know a new database or citation style.  They can also help you shape assignments in ways which support information literacy skills such as critical thinking and are available to provide suggestions about how to create learning opportunities that decrease the likelihood that your students will commit plagiarism.  Fill out the library instruction request form to get this type of support from a faculty librarian.
