Working with Instructors

We can come to your class or your class can come visit us in the library. We can help students who are new to academic libraries navigate the resources and services we offer and guide them through the search process. Please contact your college librarian to make arrangements and plan your library session. (1 week notice preferred)
For more advanced classes, we can tailor our sessions to your students’ specific research needs. Please contact your college librarian to make arrangements and plan your library session. (1 week notice preferred)
If you need something more specialized, small group workshops on demand are also an option. We teach how to research the literature review, Zotero, QGIS, Intro to Git, and Qualtrics among other topics. Please see the workshops on demand list for details and contact information. (1 week notice preferred)
We can help you create a web-based guide or tutorial for your class. Students find these guides helpful when selecting the appropriate research tools and the guides are very customizable. Please contact your college librarian to discuss your needs. (2 weeks notice preferred)
You or your students can set up a one-on-one appointment with the librarian for your college. To make an appointment, contact your college librarian.
When you are preparing for your classes, consider meeting with your college librarian to see how to best integrate library resources and research skills into your course. For example, did you know you can pull Library Research Guides directly into your Canvas site or that you can link to Ebooks and online journal articles? Please contact your college librarian to find out more.
We can meet one-on-one with you to help with any challenges you experience when managing research data. This includes guidance to write data management plans for grant proposals; review of data management plan drafts; help identifying repositories where to preserve and make publicly available your datasets; help preparing your datasets for deposit in ScholarsArchive@OSU or other repositories; talk about best practices to organize, backup or control versions of your data. Visit the Research Data Services website to find out more.
