Instruction and Training

Instruction & Training

The University of Oregon Libraries provide great opportunities for improving student academic success.

Librarians provide a variety of instruction to improve research knowledge and skills, including course integrated instruction, customized consulting, and credit courses.  Technology skill development workshops are also available.

Course Integrated Instruction

Course integrated instruction in information research and more is available for all UO courses. Librarians will work with faculty and GTFs to develop instruction specifically tailored to the needs of the students. Instruction may also be provided to non-UO groups as time and space permit. More >>

Credit Courses

The UO Libraries offers credit courses each year, including 300 level courses and practicums. More >>

Curriculum Support

Librarians are specialists in one or more subject areas, and can offer support to faculty and GTFs in designing research assignments; integrating information competencies into course objectives; developing web guides, Blackboard tools, and interactive media to support assignments or course content; and other forms of collaboration to support the curriculum.

Instructional Technology

The Libraries support the UO's teaching and learning mission with a wide variety of technology-based resources and services, including Blackboard, classroom equipment support and training, and video production. More >>

Research Assistance

Students, faculty and others needing research assistance are welcome to take advantage of our chat, email, phone, and walk-in reference services.  For more complex or specific research questions, contact the librarian subject specialists.  More >>

Self-Guided Instruction

For those who are more independent learners or who can't get to the Libraries, we offer a number of ways to learn about the Libraries and about information research. More >>

Technology Consulting & Workshops

The Center for Media & Educational Technology Consulting is the Library's primary service point for faculty who need assistance with the use of instructional technology outside the classroom. Its mission is to promote active learning through innovative use of technology. More >>

Tours

The UO Libraries are comprised of a main library and several smaller, specialized branch libraries. Tours of each of these facilities are available during student orientation periods and to organized groups (UO classes, classes from other colleges and universities, school groups, and community groups) upon request. Tours provide an orientation to physical spaces and services, but typically do not provide instruction in using the library's resources. More >>
