    30-minute Library Services by Major
    This 30-minute session is intended for lower-division classes and will introduce students to library services for specific academic majors. These sessions work well for classes without a defined research component. These sessions may also be followed by a subsequent 60-minute session to provide your students with two opportunities to learn about library services and research resources.

    60-minute Introductory Research
    This 60-minute session is intended for general education classes, such as ENGL 1102 or PSYC 1101, where students are working on a research-based assignment. Librarians may teach students about research topic development, searching, or selecting appropriate sources.

    60-minute Advanced Research
    This 60-minute session is intended for upper-division classes where students are working on a research-based assignment. Librarians may teach students advanced searching techniques, topic development, source evaluation, citation management software, or a discipline-specific process.
