Library Instruction Sessions
(Request Library Instruction)
**Please note that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the heavy use of online resources integrated into ACC's curriculum, and the growth of online support needed for online, hybrid, etc. classes, ACC Librarians will be offering only online instruction until 9/23/2021. Library leadership will make decisions about adding in-person options for instruction later this semester.**
To request a library instruction session by a faculty librarian, please fill out the form that matches your classroom location. A librarian will contact you to finalize details and arrangements.
Please submit the form at least 2 weeks before the planned class date.
Course-Integrated Assignment Design
The librarians can work with you to design a research assignment that matches the specifics of your course. This can take the form of a guided research process or simply a pathfinder of useful resources or many other approaches. A librarian session may or may not be included. We also can help you develop alternative ideas if you don’t want a formal research paper.
Contact info to get more information: Ashley Carr, Keri Moczygemba, or go to your campus library.
If you have an assignment that includes research but don’t want a librarian session or other more active involvement, consider having a librarian review it. We know of many resources, both online and in print, that you may not be aware of. We can help you steer your students away from simply relying on web pages and toward higher quality sources.
Contact any reference librarian to get more information.

The Librarians have developed Subject Guides for over 75 specific areas taught at ACC. These typically cover basic research techniques; library research sources, including our large collection of databases; and high-quality web sites.
The Libraries offer one-on-one reference help to students and faculty in several ways:
