The Research and Instruction department supports student learning by offering residential classroom instruction, synchronous or asynchronous online sessions, video tutorials, and other instructional materials. Faculty librarians work directly with teaching faculty to shape instructional sessions according to the faculty member’s desired learning outcomes. Our goal is to help students, staff, and faculty develop their research skills in order to use ideas and information effectively, efficiently, and ethically.
