Library Instruction Request

The Howard University Libraries offer course-integrated library instruction that focuses on the research skills needed for class assignments and projects.  We have found that students are more motivated if the library session is directed towards a specific assignment and if the instructor is present during the library visit.

 We can tailor the session to your subject area and include any of the following:

  • Developing effective strategies for finding information and documenting the sources found,
  • Identifying and accessing relevant databases and other information resources,
  • Evaluating retrieved information (e.g., popular vs. scholarly articles and library data bases vs. Web sites), and
  • Searching the online catalog, ALADIN.

If you would like to schedule a library instruction session, please complete and submit the following form.

After your request has been received, a librarian will contact you ro request the course syllabus and to discuss the specifics.
