Meet with a Librarian and Instruction forms

Do you know what the difference is between meeting with a librarian and a library instruction session? Do you know how to help someone schedule one of these things?

Meet with a Librarian

Students, staff, and faculty can make an appointment to meet with a librarian for an hour and receive 1-on-1 help with research. The library needs 48 hours to process this request. When the patron fills out the form, tell s/he to put as much information as possible -- this helps the librarian prepare for the meeting.

A patron can schedule this meeting two ways:

1. By filling out a form online through the library homepage
(usfca.edu/library --> Ask a Librarian --> Schedule an Appointment)

2. By filling out a paper form. The paper forms are kept in a tray above the key cabinet (next to the Blue Bible -- aka your Student Manual). **Make sure to give the patron the correct form** Once the patron returns the completed form to you, put it in the tray by the schedules at the very back of the reference desk

Library Instruction Session

Faculty set up a time to bring their class to the library to receive bibliographic instruction ("B.I."), also known as an orientation to our databases, catalog, search strategies and other services.

A faculty member can schedule this meeting two ways:

1. By filling out a form online through the library homepage
(usfca.edu/library --> Faculty Services --> Library Instruction --> Request a session for your class)

2. By filling out a paper form. The paper forms are kept in a tray above the key cabinet (next to the Blue Bible -- aka your Student Manual). Once the faculty member returns the completed form to you, put it in Joe Garity's mail box.

Any questions?
