For research methods courses and other courses with a strong library research component
Subject specialist librarians are available to meet with classes for instruction in the effective use of library and Internet resources. Examples of such courses are: Introduction to Graduate Research in Curriculum & Instruction, Multi-National Marketing, and History Theory & Practice.
Faculty members wishing to arrange instruction for such courses should use the instruction request form giving a minimum of two weeks notice. For televised classes, four weeks notice is preferred. Reference librarians are eager to work with faculty in planning ways to integrate information literacy into their courses.
Also, consider some of the alternatives, listed below under "For other courses."
For Certain Undergraduate Classes
A library component has been developed by the Library for certain courses, even though the librarian does not necessarily meet with classes.
For Other Courses
We have provided many excellent alternatives to library-led sessions, many of which are self-paced and available in computer labs. Some are available from any computer with Web access. Others are appropriate for group use. Take a look.
For Special Old Dominion University Programs
Coordinators for programs such as the Student Transition Program and the English Language Center may phone 683-4182 and ask for Megan Smith to inquire about instruction possibilities for such groups.
For Non-Old Dominion University Programs
Advanced placement high school groups and other groups wishing to visit our library should know that we are unable to provide tours or other instruction sessions for such groups. We can meet with high school teachers in advance of such visits, however, to orient them to our resources.
If you wish to bring a group into the library, please call 683-4182 to check with Megan Smith, the library reference department contact, to insure that no other activities will conflict with your planned visit and to discuss the number of persons that can be accommodated and the number of chaperones required for such groups.
