Library instruction classes will bring a librarian to your classroom for up to an hour. We typically show students how to use the CNM Library's catalog and databases for their research needs; they will learn how to find and use print and online sources such as periodical articles (journals, magazines, newspapers), books, ebooks, and reference materials. However, if you want a shorter lecture or more study time, we can do that, too. We try to customize our lectures to the needs of each instructor.
We typically offer 2 levels of library instruction: Introduction to Library Resources and Skills, as well as Introduction to Research. To see more details on each, including their student learning objectives, please see our Library Instruction Tiers document below.
Live library instruction is a great way for students to ask an information professional how to navigate through the databases and develop independent research skills. Much of our information can be accessed online from off-campus; for today's students, our digital Library is always open.
