Library Services for Instructors

Bibliographic Instruction

CEPS instructors may request a library instruction session for any class. We will teach students how to use the various tools available in the library, including the computer databases. Classes can be geared to specific subjects and/or assignments. We also offer LIB 120, a 3-credit course in information literacy. It is an in-depth look at information retrieval and critical analysis, teaching information gathering, and management skills.

Electronic Reserves

Instructors may place items on Reserve for class. Students can find out which books are on Reserve by looking up the course by Instructor or by the course code. To place materials on Reserve in the Providence campus library, click on Course Reserve Guidelines and Form
