Faculty Information: Library Instruction

Introduction to the library and library resources for faculty.

Library Orientations

Library Orientations 

The South College libraries and resource centers offer a variety of in-person, recorded, or Zoom-delivered orientations. The purpose of these introductory orientations is to teach students how to make the best use of the resources available in the South College libraries. Additionally, faculty can arrange with their subject librarians for program and course specific orientations. For more information about introductory orientations, program orientations, and location-specific orientations, please refer to the Orientations tab on the library homepage. 

The Library Orientation Course (Canvas)

The library offers a Library Orientation Course in Canvas with versions of the course targeted for each city as well as the online campus.  The orientation is intended for online courses and programs, and courses located at a learning site that does not employ an on-ground librarian.  On-ground faculty with large class sizes that are difficult to accommodate in the library computer labs, or where class time is at a premium, may make use of the online course in place of a traditional, in-person library orientation.
