Goals of First Year Instruction Program
Library faculty meet with all sections of the following first year courses.
By the end of the first-year library instruction program, students will know that as SHU students they have the potential to become scholars in a variety of academic disciplines and that the library has resources and services to assist them in this pursuit. Students will also understand that participating in scholarship begins with practicing research as openminded and self-directed inquiry. Students will learn and practice research skills and concepts that will enable them to begin the research process.
Learning Outcomes of the First Year Instruction Program:
These sessions are based on the following Learning Outcomes but may vary slightly in content in order to support the research needs of each class. The skills taught in these classes are invaluable for students as they set the foundation for good research skills and a familiarity with the library that greatly benefits them in their coursework and overall experience at Seton Hall.

Library Instruction for Upper-Division Undergraduate and for Graduate Courses
Faculty are welcomed and encouraged to book library instruction classes for their undergraduate and graduate courses. Library faculty will collaborate with academic faculty to design lessons for specific course or assignment learning objectives. All efforts will be made to pair classes with the appropriate subject librarian. Classes can include time for individual, guided research practice.
We offer the following lessons in addition to custom class options. All classes can be tailored for Undergraduate or Graduate audiences. We can also conduct mini-lessons that occur over a partial class period.
