Library Instruction Request Form

(BSU Faculty)

As Information Literacy is an outcome of the Undergraduate Core Curriculum at Bridgewater State University, the Librarians are looking forward to discovering ways that Information Literacy can be implemented into classes. The Librarians at Maxwell Library can collaborate with faculty members in a number of ways to deliver Library Instruction to students. It is our hope that we will be able to work with faculty in creating assignments that involve research and critical thinking skills. For those familiar with our traditional Library Instruction sessions, you can still request this service by filling out the Library Instruction form below. Please also note that we have included some additional options to our request form. For more information or questions please contact Pamela Hayes-Bohanan, Coordinator for Library Instruction, or your Department liaison.
