Faculty members who would like to provide library instruction for a particular class are invited to contact the library to request an instruction session. Such a session would focus on the specific subject area requested by the faculty member and include an introduction to the Libraries of the USF System online catalog, appropriate subject databases, and/or other related information sources. Evaluation of materials, plagiarism and bibliographic styles are included. Instruction sessions take place in the library electronic instruction classroom (Room 218) and can be scheduled during a normal class meeting period or at another time convenient for the students. Supporting handouts are usually available.
