Library Research Instruction

The Library 201 online information literacy course covers the basic information literacy foundation needed for most of our general education courses that require library research. Librarians will be scheduling a limited number of individualized instruction workshops for higher level research needs in upper division or specialized courses. In order to ensure the best library instruction session for your students, we require the following:

  • Students should complete the Library 201 course prior to the session.

  • Library instruction session must be requested at least 2 weeks in advance.

  • Assignments must be sent to the librarian instructor with the request.

  • Instructors must attend the session with students.

To request library instruction, complete this form and select  the "Wayne, Medina, or Lakewood Campuses" option, and include a copy of your assignment with your submission.


The library’s LibGuides have been designed for specific assignments and high interest topics.  The guides include research advice and links to specific resources (recommended databases, bibliographies, instructional videos, and more!).  Work with the Wayne College librarians to develop guides for your assignments and help direct your students to the resources you want them to use. 

Subject guides of special interest to faculty members include the How-To Guides on “Academic E-books” and “Copyright.”

Go to Wayne College Library's Research Guide List to see available guides or contact Maureen to request to have a new one created for your assignment.

Assignment Consultation

Discuss your research assignments with the librarians to see if we can support your assignment with a research guide or perhaps offer additional ideas.  Let us help you make sure your students turn in assignments that are a pleasure to read and grade!

Library Lab

Twenty individual computer workstations as well as an instructor station with projector are available in the library lab (F-116).  This is an open lab most hours the library is open, but there may be library instruction sessions or workshops scheduled in this space.  A lab schedule is posted outside the door.  The lab may be reserved by faculty (contact Maureen for availability) for hands-on library research instruction.
