Library Instruction Services

The reference librarians at University Libraries offer many different instructional workshops, guides, and tutorials to help the DU community learn about library research. Please take a look at our guide to see what we have to offer!


Library instruction sessions are one of the best ways to develop students' research skills. Reference librarians at the Libraries are happy to work with you to develop student-centered library instruction opportunities specific to your course and assignments. Potential topics include, but are not limited to: using library databases, effective search strategies, evaluating sources, and using information ethically. Librarians teach in-person, online, and are also able to provide asynchronous learning materials such as video tutorials and online research guides for courses, both of which can be embedded in Canvas. Additional time might be needed to prepare tutorials or research guides, so please contact your librarian to talk about in-person, synchronous, and asynchronous instruction options. The Libraries also have collections of online books, journals, and streaming videos that can be used for course materials. 


The reference librarians at University Libraries offer many instructional opportunities to help the DU community learn about library research.  Our instructional services include:

  • Regularly scheduled research workshops on a variety of topic and resources.  These workshops are open to current DU students, faculty, and staff.
