WELCOME to the Instructional Services Program!  

This guide will explain the various Levels of Instruction that we provide for our students and faculty.

Level 1 - Library Orientation

Description - 1001 First Year College Experience classes. Library tour/game.

Objective - To have the students become acquainted with our building and library staff. Using the Library Instagram account, students move through the building capturing a variety of photographs of the library spaces. During this process, they also see friendly faces and become comfortable asking questions.
