Librarians can provide real-time online library instruction for your classes using Zoom. Zoom is easy to use and works well as an alternative to face-to-face library instruction.
We offer instruction and reference support from Chemeketa Librarians Monday - Friday, between 9:00 and 5:00. We are handling Saturday and evening requests on a case-by-case basis.
To schedule online library instruction, email reference with class details, including days and times of any regularly scheduled meetings, and the best week of the term to meet in order to work with your assignment schedule. An instruction librarian will work with you to schedule the best time possible and email you the Zoom details to share with your students.
If students are unable to attend a live session or if you prefer an asynchronous option, there is prerecorded instruction for WR 121 and WR 122 classes. Students cannot chat with a librarian when viewing a recording, but the recordings can be an effective alternative depending on the needs of your class. These session were recorded during Winter Term 2020 before the the library started operating remotely, so some information has changed.
This type of library instruction has been provided to online classes for several years. We can continue to introduce your students to library resources and support the information literacy outcomes in your courses without requiring a face-to-face meeting. We hope that meeting the librarians online and learning about available resources will help your students succeed in class and affirm our connection as a college.
Please continue to refer students to our online library chat and reference email for research assistance!
