Library instruction is one way that students learn how to effectively research and become more information literate; one study showed that 73% of polled students did not know what college research entails (Head, 2007). Beyond providing the pure mechanics of research, library instruction provides a touchpoint for students to connect to the library and recognize who they can reach out to for help. Additionally, research has shown that students who attend a library instruction session "have a statistically significant higher chance than their peers of being retained" (O'Kelly et al., 2023).
We strongly encourage all instructors with a research component in their classes to schedule some form of library instruction. We offer traditional library visits as well as custom library modules, webinars, guided research sessions, flipped library sessions, and more.
All sessions are customized for each class based on the assignment and goals of the instructor. Teaching at a Center? No problem! The librarians will travel to any SF location.
