Instruction Policies

Library Instruction Sessions:

IUB faculty and instructors are welcome to schedule a library instruction session, taught by a librarian or graduate assistant, for their students.  Each instruction session is tailored to meet the information requirements of a specific course or assignment.  

To request a library instruction session, fill out and submit the  Request Instruction Form.  

  • Please submit only one class session at a time.  
  • Please allow for a minimum of 10 working days advanced notice when scheduling library instruction.
  • The presence of the course instructor or faculty member is required during library instruction sessions. 

For more information or questions, contact

Instruction Cluster Use:

Due to the large number of library instruction sessions taught each semester, the three Information Commons Instruction Clusters are limited to IUB Library staff use. However, if instructors/faculty choose to teach library resources and information literacy concepts without a library instructor present, they may schedule the IC Instruction Clusters for such a purpose. These reservations can only be made 7 days or less prior to the date requested and can be made by e-mailing

As a guest user of an Instruction Cluster, you will have access to the following:
  • 25 student workstations (2 are wheelchair accessible)
  • 1 instructor workstation
  • Projector and projection screen
  • White board & dry erase markers
  • NOTE: Audio available through headphones only
  • Library handouts (e-mail for paper copies)
Library Instructional Clusters are open on a first-come-first-served basis for individual or informal group work when not scheduled for an instruction session.

If the above does not meet your needs, visit the STC web page for information about UITS Student Technology Centers that may be reserved for classroom use.

EndNote sessions are now part of the UITS STEPS Workshops. See IT Training & Education for more information.
