Welcome! The UNR Libraries provides a number of different resources for instructors that support the teaching of information literacy skills in the classroom, outside of the classroom, and through WebCampus. This page describes many of these resources and provides links to getting the assistance you need to enhance your classes.

Library Class Sessions, Orientations, and Tours
Librarians are happy to come to your class to show your students how to use library resources for their assignments. We can either come to your classroom or you can bring your students to the library for a tour and/or more extensive hands-on research instruction.

There are two ways to put materials on reserve for your classes

The UNR Libraries has a complete list of Library Guides by Subject. You can add the link to one of these guides to your syllabus, to an assignment, or to your WebCampus course. We can also make tailored library guides that offer a list of best resources for research for a specific class. See some Course-Specific Guides for examples, and contact your Subject Librarian to request a specific gude for your class.
The UNR Libraries have a number of Online Tutorials that help students learn to use library resources. You can add links to these tutorials to WebCampus classes or list them in your assignments.
