Instructional Services

Edith Garland Dupré Library offers a variety of instructional formats: research appointments for students or faculty, general and specialized library instruction sessions and a one-credit-hour course covering basic and advanced library research techniques, information literacy, U.S. Government information and Special Collections.

The Instructional Services Department is committed to the pursuit and promotion of education primarily through library instruction. Effective bibliographic instruction reflects the University's primary purposes of teaching, learning, scholarship, research and public service.

To schedule an instructional session or research appointment, use the Instructional Request Form, or contact Jennifer Hamilton, Head of Instruction, at (337) 482-1160 or When making your request, please include the class number, number of students, the topics you would like covered, and a first, second and third choice for the date of the session. After receiving your request, a librarian will contact you to plan the session and identify potential learning outcomes revolving around an assignment or project the students are working on. We ask that instructors give at least two weeks notice in booking instructional sessions for preparation, but don't hesitate to ask if you have a library instruction emergency.
