What do your students need to know?

Students often don't realize that librarians can help them develop research skills, or are hesitant to ask when they need help. Even students who have visited the library or conducted research before can still improve their skills and learn new strategies.

Our librarians teach in-class sessions, schedule one-on-one research appointments, and create online research guides to connect students with needed skills and resources. We aim to be approachable and knowledgeable guides for your students, helping to make a vast information landscape more manageable.

What do you need to know?

Instruction at Armacost Library is based on our teaching philosophy and information literacy competencies. We will work with you to design instruction sessions that support your assignments and learning goals in first-year seminars and upper-division courses.



Want to see some examples?

We recognize exceptional faculty-librarian instruction collaborations through the annual IL Faculty Showcase, and exemplary student research through the Armacost Library Undergraduate Research Award (ALURA). View award-winning submissions here.
