Further Details

Our online tutorial, LUCI (Library User Computer Instruction),  features video clips and narration.  We also offer the text-based Online Tutorial as an alternative to LUCI.

Either tutorial  can be used to supplement--or completely replace--a class visit to the Library Instruction Lab for a presentation by a librarian.  The Online Tutorial link in the left-edge menu leads to LUCI but has a link to the text-based tutorial for those users whose computers are unable to run LUCI.  What the students submit will be forwarded via email to the instructor assigning either tutorial.

also offer specifically-focused orientations for individual classes.  Presentation examples can be geared to match instructors' assignments OR the Library's "Hands-On" Exercise Research Strategies Assignment can form the basic agenda. Live instruction sessions are either offered in the Library's 28-station lab OR a librarian can be scheduled to give library instruction in any classroom with "Smart Cart" computer/projection capabilities and a campus network connection.

complete a request form online  to schedule a librarian as a guest speaker for their classes.  Please request sessions at least  TWO WEEKS  before the preferred date.  Contact our instruction librarian, Roxane BenVau, by email, or call her at (619) 644-7553 if you have any questions.

wishing to receive instruction on library use may follow the "Help with Research" link in the menu bar on the left side of this page, ask the librarian on duty at the Reference Desk, sign up for LIR110, or suggest to their instructor that their class be brought to the library for group instruction by a librarian. After a library orientation that shows students generally how and where to find sources helpful to their research, questions for the reference librarians can focus on specific needs as they arise.  Anyone may also complete an Online Tutorial as a learning tool.
