Schedule a Library Orientation
Are you an instructor looking for a way to boost your students’ search skills? Consider scheduling a class library orientation. Taught by faculty librarians with master’s degrees in library and information science, we tailor our lesson to fit your assignment and students’ needs. Book at least a week in advance as space is limited. Online booking form is for Rocklin campus Library only.
To schedule an orientation at the Nevada County Campus Library or the Tahoe-Truckee Library, please contact the library by phone or in person.
