Library Instruction Classes
We offer course-integrated, hands-on library instruction classes that support students in locating information and developing skills in information literacy, research skills, and critical thinking. If you are a Miami Faculty member and would like to have a librarian come to your class, please do one of the following:
- Schedule a class using the Instruction Request Form or the ENG 111 Instruction Request Form (for 1st year composition classes) OR
- View our list of Subject Experts to find the appropriate librarian-instructor for your course
Subject and Course Guides
Online research guides, created in collaboration between faculty members and librarians, collect a variety of subject or assignment-specific resources in one place.
Guides may be customized to include how to use the library to conduct research, as well as links to discipline-specific databases and websites, multimedia tutorials, citation help, and other support tools. Please contact a Subject Expert if you’d like a research or course guide created for your course.
The libraries hold workshops throughout the year open to all Miami faculty, staff and students. They focus on research databases and tools, scholarly communication, creativity and editing software for audio and video, and 3D printing technology. These workshops are available as scheduled, drop-in sessions or can be scheduled on an as-needed basis for your department or class.
