When Should I Request Library Instruction?

If you are following the Common Syllabus then the best time to request library instruction is sometime during week 2-10.  Library instruction usually takes a whole class period (50-60 minutes depending on the length of your class).

Why do I have to bring my class to the library for instruction?

Short Answer:  It's required!

Long Answer:  The course criteria for Rhetorical Arts was voted on and approved by LMU faculty.  The course criteria for Rhetorical Arts states, "Assign at least 10% of the final course grade on the basis of information literacy with a librarian-led workshop and one or more course-integrated assignments."
