At MHCC, library instruction is aligned with national and regional Information Literacy standards, integrated within existing courses, customized to be assignment-specific, and designed to encourage active learning. Professional librarians provide faculty and students with instruction in information literacy (IL) skills and using library resources, including the library catalog, databases, and print and electronic collections. Library instruction is most meaningful to students when connected with a specific source-related activity. Library instruction sessions are designed and scheduled to meet the particular needs of your students.
NOTICE FOR SUMMER 2015 TERM: There is no library instruction service over the summer.
NOTICE FOR FALL 2015 TERM: For library instruction requests for the fall term, faculty are encouraged to submit requests through the online form below, in order to place those requests in the queue. Faculty may submit those requests whenever working on syllabi and/or course schedules, during the summer or during in-service week, whatever works best for you and your personal timeline. The Library Instruction Coordinator will then begin filling those fall requests for library instruction 1 week before fall term begins, at the beginning of in-service week, when the faculty librarians return.
