Library Instruction

Library InstructionOur librarians provide library instruction sessions in our 1st Floor Library Classroom.  We can tailor our class to any subject area, course or assignment.  Just let us know what you need!  We are dedicated to helping students become independent, life-long learners.

To schedule a session for your class email us at library@sfc.edu or contact your subject liaison librarian.

What Does Library Instruction Cover?

LibrarianLibrary instruction classes allow students to establish personal relationships with their subject librarian. Students are much more likely to approach a librarian for help later in the semester once they have met in a classroom setting.

We also cover:

  • Introduction to Library Resources
  • Research Strategies and Tips
  • Search Methods 
  • Evaluating Web Resources
  • Plagiarism and Citation Help

Open Education Resources

OER Many studies show around two-thirds of students don't purchase a required textbook due to cost.

It doesn't have to be this way! Open Education Resources (OER) are teaching materials that are freely accessible and openly licensed so anyone can use, adapt, remix, and share them. The SFC library provides support for faculty who wish to replace expensive textbooks with OER.


Check out our online OER guide for more information.

Online Research Guides

Research Guides Our collection of online research guides organize and highlight relevant resources for particular subject areas. We also have tutorials to help students master a variety of skills and technologies.
