Instructional Services

High-quality instructional services are at the core of our mission in CECH Library. We provide library instruction, embedded library support in Canvas, and reference assistance in support of the entire CECH community, including the Schools of Criminal Justice, Education, Human Services, and Information Technology.

Your CECH librarian is available to consult about all of these modes of instruction.

Library Instruction

Librarians are available to provide library instruction sessions for students per faculty request. Instruction may include information literacy skill building or tutorials on using and choosing library resources. We tailor all library instruction to course and student needs.

Instruction sessions are available both virtually and in-person. We provide library instruction asynchronously via custom online learning tools such as LibGuides, Canvas content, or videos.

CECH librarians are also available to consult with faculty on creating assignments, programmatic information literacy touchpoints, and more.

Embedded Support

Faculty may choose to embed a librarian into their Canvas course as a mode of student support.  Embedded librarians may consult with students asynchronously via email or discussion boards and are available for real-time consultations in-person, via telephone or WebEx/Teams. 

Contact your CECH librarian to discuss embedded support via Canvas for your course.

Reference Assistance

Your CECH librarian can help you locate resources, create the perfect search query, assist with interlibrary borrowing. We can also provide citation guidance to students and faculty.
