Library Instruction Sessions
Instructors at the Rancho Cordova Center are encouraged to schedule library instruction sessions for their classes using the Library Instruction Request Form. Librarians will teach students how to use the library resources and services that best meet the research needs of the individual course or assignment. We will also cover basic search strategies, techniques, and tips.
We will confirm your library instruction date, time, and location once you fill out the form. At least one week’s notice is required to schedule a library instruction, and your presence during the scheduled session is expected. If you have any questions, please contact James Telles at (916) 608-6528 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
