Faculty Information: Request Instruction

Library Instruction Sessions

Librarians provide customized library instruction sessions as requested by on campus faculty, College Now Program faculty, faculty teaching courses off campus and high school instructors.

The Librarian will book the lab (if necessary) for your class. Lab times can fill up quickly, so we recommend getting your requests in as soon as possible.

SMSU faculty:   Contact the librarian you'd like to work with directly at -
If you are unsure, or do not have a preference, please email Pam Gladis - to coordinate your instruction request. 

 Please be sure to indicate

  • the course number and name,
  • the time of the course,
  • and at least three dates that would work for the instruction session. 

If you are a College Now or High School instructor interested in library instruction, please contact Maria Kingsbury - with your instruction request.

Student Learning Outcomes

Library faculty have developed Library/Information Literacy Student Learning Outcomes for specific courses.

First Year Seminar

The Library is heavily involved in information literacy instruction for our First Year Seminar courses. These Student Learning Outcomes are used to establish a baseline for information literacy instruction at the university. 


Research Consultations

Interested in having your students meet as individuals or groups with a Librarian? Our Research Consultation option is just the service to support that!
