Faculty Library Guide: Instruction and Research Support

Request Library Instruction

Librarians are available to visit your class or have your class visit the Library to learn about resources or research methods that will be helpful for your course assignments or studio processes. Classes are tailored to discipline-based research or to specific course assignments. We ask that you schedule at least one week in advance to allow time for the librarians to prepare a customized session for your class.

With or without a class visit, librarians can also create an online research guide tailored specifically to your course. These guides can point students to important resources, include step-by-step instructions for navigating particular databases, offer research tips and search strategies, and more.

Requests for library research instruction should be sent to the Instruction and Research Services Librarians at or directly at:

Claire Powell, 941-309-0038

Research Consultation

Librarians are available to meet with faculty, staff, and students either individually or in groups to support a variety of research projects, including those pertaining to personal research and collection needs, instructional and assignment design, citation management, search strategies, and much more.
