Library/LSC Remote Instruction Request

Library/LSC Remote Instruction Request

Would you like library and/or LSC staff to work directly with your class?

Librarians can present instruction in library services, information literacy, and/or critical thinking. We are happy to visit your synchronous online class or customize a video tutorial for asynchronous settings. 

Learning Support Specialists can provide virtual classroom visits, online workshops via Zoom, or other instruction for all disciplines. Both areas can also collaborate to customize a learning experience.  Let us know how we can serve you and your students to support the remote learning process!


Participating Instructors

We are seeking instructors who want a collaborative relationship with the LSC. By sharing information with each other, we can support your students even better! To get started, all we ask is for some basic information about your class. After that, you will receive a weekly email to ask what’s new in your neighborhood (current assignments, upcoming tests, etc.). In exchange, we will provide you with some data about your students’ visits to the LSC.

Open Educational Resources

Are you interested in helping to make education more affordable for your students? Using an Open Educational Resource (OER) textbook is a great way to reduce costs and dependency on financial aid. Click here for the Library’s OER LibGuide with resources that can help you adapt an existing OER or create one of your own.

Embedded Librarians

If you include research or information literacy projects as part of your course, you may want to consider adding the services of an embedded librarian as an extra resource for your students.  Through the D2L platform, an embedded librarian, as an assistant instructor, can provide direct support to your students for specific assignments requiring specialized resources.  Particularly useful for online courses whose students cannot visit the library in person, an embedded librarian can also be great support for hybrid or face-to-face classes.  

Embedded LSS

Embedded Learning Support Specialists (LSS) can provide specific guidance to your students as they move through the course.  As a participant in your online course site or through virtual classroom visits, an LSS can provide direct support for student assignments. Request an embedded Learning Support Specialist today.
