KEAN UNIVERSITY LIBRARY

Library Orientation / Library Instruction Request Form

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Librarians provide library orientations and instruction sessions for students as a way to help them acquire the skills necessary for conducting research and writing papers. These instruction sessions are most effective when the librarian is able to plan the session with a particular class assignment in mind, so that emphasis may be placed on the electronic and print resources that are most relevant for the project.

Please fill out and submit this form via e-mail at least two weeks prior to the appointment date. Please feel free to contact Linda Cifelli at 908-737-4603 or lcifelli@cougar.kean.edu if you have any questions.

Thank you for submitting your online request for library instruction..
