Instructional Services

Edith Garland Dupré Library offers a variety of instructional formats:

  • General and specialized library instruction sessions
  • Research appointments for students and faculty
  • Identification of library and other information resources for faculty that can be embedded in Moodle at point of need for students
  • Development of self-paced instruction modules for Moodle that cover use of specific databases and other library resources for specific classes and assignments
  • English 305, a one-credit-hour course covering basic and advanced library research techniques, information literacy, U.S. Government information, and use of Special Collections and Internet sources.

The Instructional Services Department is dedicated to the design, delivery, testing, and continual improvement of library instruction to ensure students and faculty are aware of and can effectively use information resources to achieve their research goals. Effective bibliographic and information literacy 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  After receiving your request, our staff will work with you to plan the session and identify potential learning outcomes revolving around the assignment or project for which they will need to do research.

We ask that instructors give at least two weeks notice in booking instructional sessions to allow time for design of a session specific to your students' needs, but don't hesitate to ask if you have a library instruction emergency.
