Library Instruction


The University Library provides individualized and special group instruction for faculty and their classes upon request. Requests for research instruction should be made at least a week in advance, although exceptions may be made depending upon availability of staff. Faculty requesting research instruction for their students should provide the following:

  • The faculty member's name, department, and contact information
  • The date and time of the requested instruction
  • How many students are in the class
  • A description of what the students need to learn, along with the course syllabi and assignment

Initial requests for research instruction should be sent to Library Director, Larry Treadwell, by email or phone at or 305-474-6860.

You may also submit a request by filling out the Library's Instruction Request Form.


Students may request individual or group research instruction. Students interested in scheduling a research instruction session may contact the Interim Library Director, or make arrangements with the librarians at the Library's Reference Desk in person or by calling 305-628-6668.
