Book a Librarian Visit

Did you know?

  • A librarian can visit your class either in-person or online.
  • During our visit, we can familiarize your students with information tools and resources in their various forms, and teach research skills necessary to apply these tools and resources effectively.
  • You and your librarian will work together to tailor the instruction session to your particular outcomes and needs.

Library Instruction Options for Your 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 (Class Librarian) to your class so that we can work directly with your students. Basically, this means that you will have your own class librarian. 
  • You can include this Library Virtual Tour in your classes. You'll find a copy in the Canvas Commons.
  • 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. Just contact your Librarian Liaison to get started.
  • 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.

If you have any questions, please contact your librarian liaison.
