Tulane University Libraries' Instruction Program

Philosophy

Information literacy is interdisciplinary and is crucial to student success and lifelong learning. Likewise, teaching the research process is complex and involves collaborative, programmatic approaches.

We offer learning opportunities at strategic points in the curriculum, where our librarians’ time and expertise can be most beneficial.

Given that information is contextual and a consequence of power structures, we encourage reflection on how these dynamics overlap with broader social justice inequities.

We strive to teach in ways that benefit all learners as outlined by the principles of universal design for learning.

Request Instruction

The Libraries are excited to welcome faculty and students back to campus in Fall 2021. Instruction will be offered in several formats (in-person, online, and hybrid) to better serve the needs of faculty and students. 

To schedule a session, instructors should submit the Instruction Request Form (below) and, especially if this is your first time scheduling, a 30 minute consultation with a librarian is strongly advised. All requests must be received at least 2 weeks prior to the proposed class session.

We teach a wide range of sessions that cover topics such as:

  • Finding, evaluating, and citing sources and datasets
  • Accessing and using archives and special collections 
  • Creating and designing presentations, data visualizations, zines, and more
  • Using tools such as LabArchives, Wikipedia, Zotero, EndNote, TimelineJS, etc.
