Time and place
Most libraries at York have hands-on classrooms that can accommodate about 25 students each. Hands-on instruction is recommended for upper-year undergraduate and graduate students. We recommend a combination of online tutorials and librarian guest lectures for large enrollment first- and second-year classes.
In order to cover even the basics, we recommend at least an hour of either lecture or tutorial time. Workshops and guest lecture can range from a very general overview to a more intense focus on a single database or research index.
Scheduling and Documentation
For scheduling purposes some libraries may require at least two weeks notice for any class. If possible, we also ask that course instructors supply us with a current course syllabus and list of assignments; having this material allows us to customize our workshops and lectures so that we meet your students at point of need. The fall and winter terms are very busy so we recommend you make your request for instruction as far in advance as possible.
