In addition to individual one-on-one instruction in the use of library resources, Library faculty offer both general library use and subject-specific classes day or evening upon faculty request. Sessions may be designed to meet the research requirements of a particular course or to assist with a special library assignment. In addition to these services, the Library periodically offers a course in the effective use of libraries.
The credit value for each course in semester units is indicated for each term by a number in parentheses following the title. Departments may indicate the term in which they expect to offer the course by the use of: F (fall), S (spring) or EOY (every other year).
