Instructional Services

High-quality instructional services are at the core of our mission here at the CECH Library. We provide library instruction, embedded library support within the Canvas/Blackboard learning management systems, and reference assistance in support of our college community. Your CECH librarian liaison is available to consult about all of these modes of instruction -- see below for additional detail.

Instruction

Your liaison librarian [link to staff page where are liaison areas are described] is available to provide library instruction sessions for students at the instructor’s request. Instruction sessions may include information literacy skill building and tutorials on using and choosing library resources. We tailor all library instruction to specific course needs.

Your librarian liaison is also available to consult with instructors about assignment building, programmatic information literacy touchpoints, and more.

Embedded Support

Instructors may choose to embed a librarian into their Blackboard or Canvas course as an additional means of student support. Embedded librarians consult with students asynchronously via email or discussion boards, and are also available for real-time consultations in-person, via telephone or WebEx.

Contact your librarian liaison to initiate embedded support for your courses.

Reference Assistance

Your librarian can help you locate resources, assist with interlibrary borrowing, and help you get started with the perfect search query. We’re also expert at citation and can assist students and faculty with questions on citation styles including APA, MLA, Chicago, and more.

Contact your librarian liaison to ask a reference question or use the link bleow.
