LibraryDen is an 8-module course in CourseDen with auto-graded quizzes that teaches students basic library skills and how to navigate resources in Ingram Library. It takes approximately 5-6 hours for students to complete the entire course. LibraryDen earned Ingram Library the American Library Association Library Instruction Round Table 2021 Innovation in Instruction Award. See this video or contact Anne Barnhart (email@example.com) for more information.
We also offer a suite of individual tutorials on common library skills and research needs. Each tutorial is available as a CourseDen module that you can import into your course, so you can pick and choose the lessons that are the highest priority for your course. Length varies by topic, but a normal library instruction session would cover one to two of these topics. Contact your subject librarian for more information, or to discuss developing a tutorial or other online learning object for your discipline.
