Instructional Services and Workshops

KSL staff have expertise in a variety of research methods, subject areas, and digital tools. We are happy to partner with faculty on course-integrated instruction as well as standalone workshops.

Library staff offer custom sessions on topics listed below (and more) for curricular or non-curricular support. Groups can be hosted in KSL or instruction can be brought to any location on campus. Depending on your needs we can craft anything from quick drop-in instruction to a multiple class session series. We can even help with designing effective research and digital project assignments.
