Library Instruction

(Love Your) Library Workshops

During the semester, Honnold-Mudd Library offers hands-on workshops on research strategies and technology. Workshops are open to all individuals in The Claremont Colleges community. Check out the workshop schedule and register in advance to reserve your place.

Library Instruction for Classes

Honnold-Mudd Library offers instruction sessions on information literacy skills and library research for individual courses. Librarians work with faculty to tailor sessions to the needs of a specific course. Learning outcomes for sessions are tied to the Claremont Colleges Libraries’ Information Literacy definition; sample outcomes for first-year courses, capstone courses, and graduate courses are available.

Librarians can also provide additional course support such as creating course research guides, integrating our Start Your Research tutorial and quiz into Sakai, and more.

To discuss how the Library can best support your course, contact your Subject Specialist.

Library Instruction for First-Year Undergraduate Classes

Instruction Services provides comprehensive, course-integrated information literacy instruction for first-year undergraduate classes across the 5Cs. These program-level collaborations entail “opt-in” pairings of subject-appropriate liaison librarians with first-year course faculty to provide customized, flexible, and syllabus-tailored support for student development in five IL “Habits of Mind” areas. This support typically takes the form of librarian-led workshops, syllabus consultation, online research tutorials/ guides, and/or one-on-one student appointments oriented toward specific research assignments such as papers or annotated bibliographies. Three sample scenarios of collaboration are available.

To schedule a library instruction session or syllabus consultation contact Char Booth, Instruction Services Manager (ext. 74352).

Research Appointments

You can schedule research appointments for individuals and small groups. Contact the appropriate Subject Specialist to schedule an appointment.
