Library Instruction Program
The Sul Ross Library offers face-to-face and web-based library instruction as part of our mission to provide learning resources and services necessary to support the educational, research, and information needs of the university.
Library Instruction can include:
- traditionally scheduled classroom instruction sessions
- embedded librarianship in Blackboard courses
- virtual reference service
- research consultations
- research guides
Formal and informal tours of the Library’s three levels, including an overview of the available resources. An orientation to the Archives of the Big Bend, housed on the second level, is also available with pre-planning.
Tips for Incorporating the Library into a Syllabus or Assignment
One easy thing you can do is incorporate information about the Library into your syllabi.
Even if your course does not require an explicit research component, the Library offers many opportunities for students to expand their learning. Simply by sharing information with your students about the Library, you’ll encourage them to consider these opportunities.
