Library Instruction Classrooms

Library Learning Services manage Library Instruction Rooms, reserved for teaching library-focused topics, such as library resources, research strategies, information literacy, information technology, and multimedia instruction. This also includes all course-related instruction and Library Studies credit courses, as well as instruction sessions offered by Media Commons staff.

Room Use

Due to high demand for library instruction, rooms are typically not available for use by faculty external to the library, unless it’s a library-related topic or a faculty member is partnered with a librarian or Media Commons consultant.
