Instruction and Workshops
Library instruction sessions prepare students to find, evaluate and utilize information found through library research tools such as the UIC catalog and article databases. Librarians work with instructors to create instruction sessions relevant to course assignments and goals. We are available to meet with your students in your classroom, online, or in our teaching labs for hands-on research instruction
In-person and online workshops are offered to UIC faculty, staff, and graduate students.
