Locating information is more complex today than ever before and identifying credible information is more complex still. Whether you are a student or a faculty member, the CBC Library provides a variety of ways to help you learn how to select and use our resources effectively to better meet your class-related information needs.
Reference consultations. While library staff are available to
assist you any time the library is open, we can provide you with more
in-depth, project-specific research advice by appointment.
Presentations and Resource Guides. Our librarians have prepared video and PDF presentations and online resource guides that will assist you with both general needs and with specific classes and/or assignments. We have created a 'CBC Library' section in Canvas with modules for FYI, English classes, Health Sciences classes and much more.
Please contact us or visit our libraries whenever we can be of assistance.
Tailored Instruction. Our librarians can assist you in a variety of ways to help integrate information literacy into your curriculum and help your students become better researchers. Instruction sessions focus on research skills, are directly tied to your course research assignment, and should be scheduled at point of need as close as possible to the time when students are just beginning their research. To schedule an instruction session, please complete the CBC Library Class Registration Form.
Online Instruction. We can provide a variety of instruction services online for classes offered in any mode, including video research tutorials, database demonstrations, and resource guide pages. We also welcome the opportunity to serve as course librarian in hybrid and online courses. Given the time-intensive nature of many online instruction projects we'd appreciate as much lead time as you can give us. Contact us today to discuss what we can do for your courses!
Reserve the Epicenter. If you need to reserve the Epicenter computer lab but do NOT need a librarian, please contact Reference at 509-542-4890 (on campus dial x2290) or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org; advance notice is essential, as students use these computers for research and other coursework when classes are not scheduled. Read our Epicenter page for information about the facility, its resources, and our policy regarding its use.
