Bibliographic Instruction Policy
The purpose of the Library Bibliographic Instruction Services Program is to support the educational mission of the College by teaching students in all disciplines how to find, select, and evaluate information in such a way that it has relevance to their courses and adds meaning to their lives by encouraging and facilitating intellectual independence and lifelong learning.
If a class instructor incorporates an assignment that requires use of library resources into his/her course, scheduling a library class is encouraged. A library instructor will tailor a class to focus on the skills and strategies required to complete the specific assignment. If you would like assistance in designing a library-related assignment, please contact a librarian at the appropriate location. Classes may be scheduled to take place in a library classroom, or a librarian can come to the class's regular classroom if it is enabled for digital audio-visual instruction.

Embedded librarians can be integrated into a course's D2L page, and services are available for specific assignments or over the course of an entire semester.
Available embedded librarian services include:
