The University Libraries Instruction sessions will be predominately virtual. Our librarians, curators and instructional staff are working hard to increase course support through online class guides, tutorials, and asynchronous instruction methods tailored to specific course and assignments and we will continue to be available for scheduled online instruction sessions during a class or offer pre-recorded sessions if a virtual library visit does not work.
If virtual instruction cannot meet the learning objectives for a course, some exceptions will be made to accommodate limited in-person library instruction. Any in-person instruction is at the share discretion of the library and course instructor and must meet guidelines for space occupancy and social distancing.
The learning outcomes for library instruction should be considered before making decisions to teach either online or face-to-face.
Face to face instruction is possible only if the decision to do so is mutually agreed upon by both the instructor and the librarian and the need for face to face instruction is consistent with course content and safety considerations.
