Request training

You are welcome to request a customized training session for your students, PhD students, or a research group. Since we at times have lots of teaching or other activities scheduled we recommend that you make your request well in advance.

Students benefit most from library instruction sessions when:

  • The students have just started a research assignment that requires the use of Library resources.
  • The instruction sessions are timed appropriately to the assignment due date.
  • The regular instructor is present to answer questions about the research assignment.
