This room is reserved primarily for library instruction. If you would like to collaborate with a librarian for an instruction session, please send your request and a librarian on your campus will contact you.
Please contact Debbi Lomax if you would like to reserve the library classroom for a different use which does not require a librarian. You may not reserve the room more than one week in advance unless it is for library instruction.

Yes If yes please specify: maybe 5 minutes to explain assignments Assignment description and sample topics: Orienting to the library, learning to browse, identifying various genres and personal reading interests, using the catalogue, and selecting an independent book for class (to be used for Sustained Silent Reading in class). Students will be able to (check all that apply): - Perform an efficient search of the library catalog for books and other materials (15 minutes) - Physically locate items and other resources (brief library tour ) (15 minutes) Other notes: This initial visit would be an opportunity for students to visit the library and begin to think about what books might interest them for an independent book project and Sustained Silent Reading. I am thinking that students would share ways that they find out about or recommend books, have the librarian share about several of the books on the DE/High Interest book list that students could check out, then show students how to use the library website and online catalogue to search for a book of their choice.
