Library Instruction or Tour Request

Dupré Library's Instruction Department is committed to the pursuit and promotion of education through library instruction. Effective library instruction reflects the University's primary purposes of teaching, learning, scholarship, research, and public service.

Want a tour?

Schedule in advance general and specialized tours of the library for University classes as well as off-campus groups through the Instructional Services Librarian, Jennifer Hamilton. Non-university groups such as high schools are encouraged to schedule tours during intercessions.

Have a class that needs library instruction?

Research suggests that the best way to improve research and information literacy skills is at the point of need. Retention is optimized when learners have immediate information need and can practice using the library resources to meet those needs. The library's Instruction Team and Departmental Librarians will work with you to develop library instruction specific to the needs of your class and assignments.

Request library tours and instruction sessions through the Dupré Library Instruction Request Form.
