Schedule Library Instruction

Information for Faculty

The library instruction program at LaGuardia teaches course-specific information literacy and critical thinking skills. Each English 101 and 103 section and all First Year Seminar classes are required to receive a one-hour library instruction session (or online equivalent). But faculty are welcome to schedule library instruction for any class. We require at least one-week notice for non-required sessions. Please email teachinglibrary@lagcc.cuny.edu with questions and inquiries and fill out the library instruction form below.
