Schedule library instruction for your classes

I'm happy to come speak to your classes about UNL Libraries' services and resources, and all things related to bibliometric research and information literacy. Find out more about our instruction services, or contact me to schedule a session.

Library instruction goes online

We're pleased to introduce a new tool for online instruction being used at UNL Libraries: The Guide on the Side allows us to create authentic, interactive, accessible, and assessable online tools to help introduce your students to relevant research tools and materials. See the Guide in action, or contact me if you would like one created for your course.

Citation Management Tools

UNL Libraries supports and provides instruction on, and assistance with, the following citation management tools. Collect, organize, cite, and share your research. These are especially helpful for graduate students beginning their theses or dissertations. Contact me for more information!
