Instructional Services

Wendt Librarians support students, researchers and other groups across campus develop critical information skills. Students and researchers can also get individualized assistance with projects and assignments, through their Subject Librarian, our Ask Wendt reference service or by attending a drop-in workshop.

Tailored Course Instruction

Along with technology, media, and quantitative literacy, information literacy is an intellectual and practical skill set for 21st century college graduates.* Wendt Library staff work with faculty and instructors to build students’ information skills by supporting course research requirements.  This support can be in the form of classroom instruction, online library course pages, interactive tutorials, online discussion or other formats by request, and is designed to help students:

  • Develop research topics and questions
  • Use research tools other than Google to find and access information
  • Critically evaluate sources for credibility
  • Use citation managers to organize references, create bibliographies and format papers

Contact your Subject Librarian for more information.

Research Groups and Individuals

Wendt Librarians help individual researchers and research groups develop research skills and become familiar with library tools.  Just ask! These sessions are designed to help:

  • Use specific research tools to find and access information
  • Leverage citation managers to organize references, create bibliographies and format papers

Contact your Subject Librarian for more information.
