Library Instruction Menu

Our instruction sessions are customized presentations, with hands-on training when possible, specifically tailored to your class's assigned research. Students learn to select, evaluate, and use electronic and print resources for their research. Classes are held in the library's electronic classrooms or, when necessary, your classroom.

We recommend scheduling at least 2 weeks in advance in order to allow us to prepare for the class and to honor your preferred time. Our busiest time is the first 2 months of each semester.

Use the menu below to request a session, and contact us at 407-823-5880 if you have any questions.

For contact information on scheduling a session at a branch or regional campus library, please refer to the UCF Branch and Regional Campus Libraries.
