Library Instruction at Delta Library

Your students need library instruction! Delta Library offers instruction in so many ways that there is sure to be a solution for your class. Scroll down for more information about your options or use the tabs to schedule library instruction for your class. 

How Does Online Library instruction Work?

Complete online courses are available asynchronously in eLearning for many classes. These courses allow students to work at their own pace and provide an interactive learning environment, formative assessment, and feedback not always practical in face-to-face sessions. Fill out the Online Library Instruction Scheduling Form, and we take it from there. We enroll your students in the course and after the due date you set, send you a completion report with a score based upon the number of correctly answered questions in the final quiz.

Virtual classroom visits put our traditional in-person library instruction into your virtual classroom. This is a great option if you want your students to have a more personal connection to the library. Our virtual visits can be a short introduction to online library resources or go into more depth. Fill out the Online Library Instruction Scheduling Form and choose virtual visit to get started.

Do You Offer Other Forms of Library Instruction?

The services below can be used alone or mixed and matched with an online course or virtual visit.

Tutorials are available as both How-To Videos and Interactive Asynchronous Mini-Courses. Both can be easily linked or embedded in your eLearning course shell.

  • How-to Videos are a quick way to introduce your students to the library resources and research skills they need.
  • Interactive Learning Tools teach individual databases or research concepts with the same interactivity, formative assessment, and feedback as our complete courses. These tools include a completion certificate that can be emailed or uploaded to an assignment in your eLearning course shell, providing a credit/no credit grade.

Book a Librarian offers personalized research help in an individual or small group session with a librarian. Some students need extra help, even after attending library instruction, or have particularly hard topics to research. Assign a Book-a-Librarian session to students who aren't finding the quality resources they need to succeed in your class.  

Tours are available online and cover our homepage and digital resources. 

Research guides are full of information to help students find and use library resources and are available for many classes and topics. Don't see the right research guide for your students? We can create one for your class or subject.
