Library and Research Instruction

College of San Mateo librarians teach 50 or 65 minute instruction sessions introducing research concepts and skills. In addition to general knowledge about research, many disciplines require students to acquire specialized research skills. Librarians collaborate with the faculty member to craft a session that will help students meet the course or assignment research related learning outcomes, objectives or needs. Instruction sessions can also be crafted to introduce students the library as an important resource in their academic endeavors at CSM and beyond. The ability to identify, analyze, and use information is fundamental to a successful career in higher education and in the workplace.

Faculty, Program Service Coordinators and campus leaders may request an instruction session during open hours and by special arrangement for evening classes.
