Library Instruction

Library Instruction is offered in many ways: on-campus instruction classes, one-on-one instruction, Library Basic Training online course and through various other online helps resources such as Research Help Guides.

On-Campus Instruction

On-campus library instruction classes are designed to provide students with practical knowledge of research techniques and assist students in becoming independent library users. Face-to-face teaching is offered at point of need for specific courses and research assignments upon faculty request. To request a face-to-face library instruction session, please use one of the following options.

One-on-One Instruction

This includes instruction on any of our databases, EAGLEsearch, or on research methods. Library users may receive this instruction by coming to the Research Desk anytime during our regular hours or emailing us at for a customized research strategy.

Library Basic Training Online Course

The Hunt Library's Library Basic Training is designed to provide students with a library instruction opportunity similar to the face-to-face classroom instruction. The online course introduces students to the services available, teaches them how to use EAGLEsearch, demonstrates how to access our databases, and provides the steps for requesting items from the Hunt Library. Visit the Library Basic Training page for more detailed information about the course.

If you are a faculty member requiring your students to complete the Library Basic Training Online Course, we would like to know. Please fill out the Library Basic Training form.
