Library Research & Instruction: LRI
The Trocaire College Libraries offer you the opportunity to have a Subject Librarian come to your classroom (via Zoom) to teach your students library skills and information literacy. Librarians usually cover 2-3 topics per 50 minute session. You may wish to schedule a longer session, or add a follow-up LRI session, if you feel your students need more instruction.
Each session is tailored to your coursework. You may select a topic from the list below. If you don’t see what you need, contact us. We will create a LRI sessions based on your student’s needs.
