Library Instruction

The librarians at Hofheimer Library are partners in the instruction process at Virginia Wesleyan University, and as such, require that course instructors be present during library instruction sessions.

By discussing the assignment goals together, librarians and course instructors can plan sessions that foster desired learning objectives.  Additionally, a librarian may develop a course guide be created for the class to direct student to appropriate and useful resources.
