    Course Related Instruction

    Faculty may request a customized library instruction session for individual classes. Through instruction in the use of a wide range of resources, the UCF librarians assist both undergraduate and graduate students in completing more thoughtful, interesting, and scholarly research projects. Instruction is most effective when it is integrated into the curriculum and related to a specific assignment. When the classroom instructor attends and actually participates in the instruction session, students see the value of the instruction.

    Library Instruction is customized to the specific research needs of a class. Students learn to select, use, and evaluate sources pertinent to their topics. These resources may include reference books, government documents, bibliographies, indexes to journal articles, and Internet resources. Students will learn to use resources in a variety of formats— web-based, print, CD-ROM, and microform. The Library Instruction sessions may include:

    • design of a search strategy

    • use of WebLUIS, the online information system

    • presentation of specific reference titles relevant to assignments

    • use of subject specific journal indexes—electronic and print

    • identification and location of journal subscriptions in the UCF Library collection

    • critical thinking about source content
