Library Instruction for Your Students

Library instruction for your students is available in person or online. Please contact your subject librarian for more information.

Library faculty support teaching in Canvas.  Our course reading list tool provides a quick and easy way to create reading lists and upload the Libraries' electronic resources into Canvas. 

We also offer multimedia information literacy modules (e.g., evaluating information sources, citations & academic integrity, etc.) and locally developed instructional tutorials to help develop your students' research and information literacy skills.

Campus Delivery Service

Faculty, staff, and graduate students have two campus delivery options.  They may:

  • request delivery of library materials to their campus offices
  • request items be checked out for pick up at the 1st floor atrium of RBD Library (just inside the parking deck entrance)

With the latter "pick up at RBD Library" option, please wait for an email, notifying you that "Items are ready for pickup."
