Services for Faculty: Instructional Support

Let us help make your lives easier.

Book a Librarian Visit

One of the great services library faculty provide for you is a visit to your class to talk to your students about research and information literacy concepts. We'll work with you to develop specific and meaningful instruction sessions, tailored to enhance your curriculum. Click here to see what you can expect from your class instruction session.

Complete the form below to request your session. Once submitted, we'll schedule your session and a librarian will contact you.


Instruction Options for Online Classes

Ever wondered how to get a librarian to visit your online class? We have several options for you:

  • We can add an Embedded Librarian to your online class so that we can work directly with your off-campus students. Basically, this means that you will have your own class librarian.
  • We can embed research guides and resources directly into your online or hybrid class. Simply review our list of Research Guides and choose one that will work for you.
  • Don't see a guide you like in our list? A librarian can create a research guide specifically for your class.
  • You can recommend your students enroll in one of our free, online, non-credit Research Skills courses.
  • We can work with you to create or embed YouTube videos from the MJC Library's YouTube channel (modestojclibrary) into your class.

Contact Iris Carroll by email or call 575-6082 to get started.
