The SCC library supports the College's information literacy goals by offering in-class library instruction that teaches students how to find, evaluate and use information to support their school, professional and personal needs. Librarians are available, day or evening, to provide library instruction at all SCC campus locations and online.
What students can learn in a library instruction session:
We can work with you to customize a library instruction session to meet the needs of your students, no matter what kind of research assignment they are doing. Information literacy skills are applicable in all disciplines, so please consider bringing your class for a library instruction session soon!
To book a library instruction session for your class, contact Katherine Stiwinter.
Librarian can travel to any location of an SCC course for library instruction. This includes all the SCC campuses, dual-enrollment sites, vocational centers, etc. We can even have several options for instruction for online classes. Just let us know where you are and what your needs are!
“Each instructional session that [the librarian] led was wonderful. The sessions were all equally informative, and [the librarian] did a wonderful job of engaging the students with questions, Kahoot quizzes, and handouts. She was also able to help several students locate sources during class time, which I know they appreciated.”
“I really appreciate all the hard work you put into supporting our courses and assignments. Our library staff rocks!! It truly takes a village to teach the students everything we have to teach, so many thanks for your continued help.”
“Thank you so much for your help every semester! I really appreciate your visiting my classes for library instructional presentations. These sessions help my students and myself throughout each course.”
