The Oboler Library provides library instruction for a variety of classes. Classes range from introductory sessions (First Year Seminar, COMM 1101, ENGL 1102) to specialized sessions designed for specific graduate degree programs. The classes are usually arranged between the course professor and the library instructor. Additional information can be found on the Library Instructional Services page.
It is possible for students to arrange individual instruction sessions by approaching the Reference Desk on the first floor of Oboler Library.
